Welcome to JA. I’m Vineet, a UK qualified & practicing Solicitor and I will be dealing with your case today.
To terminate the periodic tenancy , you would have to give reasonable notice.
If the rent is paid on the monthly basis, then one month notice would be needed to terminate such tenancy.
2 months notice which was provided in your tenancy agreement is no longer effective , all the terms of that agreement are no longer effective and expired with the expiry date of that tenancy agreement
You would need only one month`s notice to terminate this monthly periodic tenancy

A lease is a legal interest in a property. If the ownership of the property changes, that interest is not destroyed. This means your tenancy will persist through and after the property sale. Tenants still benefit from all their tenancy rights as described by the law. None of them are limited, altered or restricted by the change of ownership.
As tenant have the quiet enjoyment of the property without any interference , you can refuse to let any viewers in , and your Landlord /agents can not force entry or enter without your consent.
That rent agreement has expired now , with that 2 month`s notice requirement as well is not effective anyomore
Does that answers your query?
Please confirm the expiry date of that tenancy agreement ?
When you sign a tenancy agreement for a fixed term, the conditions of that tenancy agreements remain valid till the expiry date of that tenancy agreement.
You would have to give 2 months notice during the term of that tenancy agreement
After 21st Feb 2020, your Landlord can not ask you to give 2 months notice
As now it is monthly periodic tenancy , tenant would have to give one month notice to terminate it.
If your Landlord is saying otherwise, then he should better get legal advice.
Again for periodic tenancy, valid notice would be of one month if rent is paid monthly,
and if rent is paid every two weeks, then the required notice would be of 2 weeks.
