Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Can you confirm that you would like to leave at the end of the 6 month period, or has the 6 month Tenancy period already expired?
I want to leave at the end of the 6 months. However, the wording on the lease is that I should have given 2 months notice in writing to stop the lease rolling forward. I suppose I have to accept that, as it is clearly stated.
The lease began on 22 January 2015 and rent is due on the 22nd of each month. I contacted the landlord on 27 June to find out what is required as the lease comes to an end. The response was that I should have given notice in writing by 22 May. I wrote a letter and delivered by hand on 28 June (and dated 28 June) giving 2 months notice and stating that the lease would therefore end on 28 August. The landlord replied that it would continue to 22 September.
Here's the page of the lease that refers to duration and rent. there is no other reference to termination in the document.
I am sorry Jon. I note it is a Scottish Tenancy, so I will need to opt out, as I am based in England.
