You will need to refer to your tenancy agreement - it will specify notice periods - it's usually a month.

if your agreement is till january then you will have to pay up till january

That depends on the length of the tenancy agreement - if it is longer than 6 months, she can leave after that period IIRC.

depends on how long you have been there and whther you have a tenancy agreemnet that says until jan 2010 or a rolling one which you have if you have been there for a long time (to save keep doing one evry 6 or 12 months) i would think though you would have to pay until jan 2010 and let them know a month before this they have to give 2 months notice and you give one. is it through an agent or private - if it is private they might let you out of contract early due to circumstances?

the tenancy agrerement is till january so have assumed her agreement was for 12 months ending in january 2010

just looked through my agreement and it states nothing at all about giving notice.
been asking for nearly a year to have repairs done to the house and to sort some damp out and i'm getting nowhere.
could i use this as a way of getting out early as don't the landlord have a duty to carry out these repairs?which they clearly aren't going to do.

yeah it ends jan 10.
it's from an agent too.
i only had to give a months notice at last property so thought it would be the same.
just rang and spoke to agent and he said i have to give him 2 months notice.

see a solicitor for proper advice
all people here can do is guess, it needs someone qualified to read your contract properly and give you proper advice

1: Please make an appointment with the Citizens Advice
2: If you are on Housing benefit please contact them as in certain circumstances they will pay Housing benefits on two properties where it is unavoidable (this may be construed as unavoidable in losing a more suitable tenancy with you having a disabled child).

They have a duty to carry out repairs within a reasonable time. It would depend on what type of repair you're talking about as well. As for the damp, are you sure it's damp, as in have you had someone qualified check it out?

Another place for you to make a call would be the local council's housing department. They will have the landlord on a register and can help deal with problems regarding repairs. Environmental Health would be able to assist with the damp.
