Hi,

My fiancee and I have an "assured shorthold tenancy agreement" which ends Mid July, I have got a new job elsewhere and we both need to relocate to start Mid June, we've been with the same landlord for almost 2 years and need to leave a month early but the landlord is a bit of a douche, anyone have any suggestions as I cant afford the rent for 2 properties but dont want to be screwed over!

Please help!

Surely you just give your month's notice now then?
#2
Can you do that? I was led to believe you had to finish the whole period of the tenancy by the letting agency??

Sounds to me as though you're going to have to pay the rent on 2 prop's for a month.

In fairness, you would feel aggrieved if your landlord chucked you out a month early.

Honour your agreement I think

But good luck and good luck in your new job

Depends what your assured shorthold tenancy agreement states, for example the place I had last year after the first 6months I could give a months notice even though you would have called it a 12 month assured shorthold tenancy agreement. Thus under those terms you could give your notice this month, to move out next month.

I'll be honest, I'm not sure... probably best to read over your tenancy agreement and there are plenty of sites with advice. I'd Google you some links but I'm only on my phone at the moment, which is hard work lol

We nearly did, but due to my final exams it worked out fine and gave notice on the 11th month. That is why I know this as if my final exams had been earlier we would have been out a month earlier and saved ourselves £595 in rent!

mine was £750 a month LOL

Depends what it says on your letting agreement. I would think. My neighbour has a short assured tenancy but after the initial six months it went onto a rolling tenancy with two months notice required from either party. It should by law, tell u clearly on your tenancy agreement.

House? Ours was just a flat, albeit a huge two bedroomed one which was a new build, but it was only in Coventry!

I rang the landlord and explained, he said he'd think and get back to me

Check your agreement. I had a similar issue. Spoke to letting agents, they reckoned I had to wait till end of the 6 month period, I was a bit peeved and reminded them that they were allowed to chuck me out with 1 months notice, but I had to fulfill my 6 months! I spoke to someone more capable, they said it's just 1 month.

Tenancy agreement are always a bit trickily worded to try to trip up residents. Flick through, if something is a bit vague re tenency periods use it to your advantage. Be warned though they may try to be a bit picky about your deposit!

I think the law is 1 month notice from yourselves but 2 from them if they want you out.
