If the lease a short assured tenancy? Have you been given two months notice at the end of a term of the lease. In other words at the end of a 6 month or year period. If so you can go to court and defend the case but that will just delay the process. There is no defence to a termination of a short assured tenancy lease at its end date, known in Scotland as the ish date. You could delay things for two or three months but that is all. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited fro my time.
