Expired

Can anyone advise on an issue over a tenancy contract?

Found 28th Mar 2009
We currently have a tenancy agreement that runs out in about one month (30th April) but there is a clause in the contract that states that either party (tenant and landlord) need to give two months notice to terminate the contract.

My question is, if we gave notice today that we want to terminte when the contract expires on 30th April, can the landlord still charge us for rent for two months from today or do we only have to pay until 30th April?

Many many thanks for any help.

You should be able to leave end of contract, as legally your only contracted to stay till 30th april and only pay till end of contract.

I presume you only have to give notice when relevant to do so. Having one month remaining of a contract will over-rule the need to give two months notice. They can't charge you an extra month, as you are no longer in contract for that period

The two months notice is usually if you want to terminate the tenancy within the period of the contract, if it finishes at the end of April then it's finished at that time unless you ask to extend it. How do you pay the rent? If it's by direct debit then make sure your bank cancels it in time.
