An AST is usually granted for a fixed term of 6 or 12 months with and End of Fixed Term Date. i.e. The end of the Assured part of the tenancy. The tenancy then usually becomes a monthly rolling 'Statutory Periodic Tenancy' after the fixed term.
My question then is - Is the "End of Fixed Term" date the same as the "End of Tenancy"?
Surely the 'End of Fixed Term' and the 'End of Tenancy' are 2 different things.
I am of the opinion that - Just because the End of Fixed Term has ended, does not necessarily mean that the Tenancy contract has ended.
I.e. Does the tenant not have to give 1 months notice to quit, or can they just inform the Landlord say 2- 3 days before the End of Fixed term date and leave? Surely they should have to give the Landlord at least 1 month notice to quit?
I can not find any clause in the NLA tenancy agreement which clarifies this.
Does the tenant not have to give written notice to "End" the tenancy contract.
I am of the opinion that really they should give at least 1 months notice to quit if they intend to leave on the End of Fixed Term date. Please can someone clarify?
