This means that rental periods are based on calendar months and run from the day after the end of the fixed maturity. These will be weekly or monthly periods, depending on what the agreement says and involve the delays in paying rents. An AST may be for any duration, but there is a minimum period of six months during which the tenant cannot be evacuated under the short circuit – Section 21 of the 1988 Act. The message you give must end on the first or last day of your rental period. I had a 12-month lease, I gave a one-month time limit in the field, I was told I had to give two months` notice, because in the contract signed, it is under the mutual break clause. Is it legally binding, because I understood that a tenant must have only one month. A tenant may waive his lease at the end of the lease or during a periodic lease, but must notify the lessor of a one-month period (the amount of termination required during a periodic lease may vary). If a tenant wishes to be evacuated by the deadline specified in the tenancy agreement, provided the end date is March 21, 2019, the tenant must ensure that the notification is communicated to the landlord by February 21, 2019. However, if the tenant does not seriously comply with the terms of the tenancy agreement, it could be released for contractual reasons within the temporary and six-month protection period – Section 8 Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988, amended in 1996, contains 17 separate grounds for which the lessor can evict a tenant. At the end of the limited term, the tenancy agreement ends and, in accordance with the law, there is no provision that the tenant must terminate the contract. The tenant can leave without notice, provided he surrenders before or on the last day of the lease. However, if the contract provides for formal notice, tenants should comply. If you wish to terminate an exercise lease (i.e.

a monthly employment contract that came into effect at the expiry of the “fixed term”), you can also issue a notice in accordance with Section 21 regarding the termination of the lease. At least 2 months` notice is also required to terminate a periodic lease with a Section 21 notice.
