Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.

I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. If the government decides not to extend the end of May deadline for six months notice (no one knows yet), then you are entitled to revert to the normal procedures if they come back into force, or you will need to abide by whatever other procedures the government put in place. It may be possible that it will go down to three months, remain at six months, or it may go back to the normal status...whichever is in force will be what you are entitled to use, even if you have already served an earlier six months notice, you will be able to serve a new one if you wish.

However, the notice period for a landlord in normal times is two months, not one.
