Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

Hi Guys – I have been a tenant in this property for 2.5 years – I was just coming up to my tenancy renewal – when I was informed that the landlord will be selling, I was then served with a section 21 notice .
I have now been told that I need to be out of the property by the 25th Sep
In the area where I live rental properties are very very hard to come by – I have now found something I like.
I spoke with the agency – who verbally told me that the LL would be happy for me to vacate the property on the 18th of August – I totally forgot to get this in writing. Based on what was discussed over the phone, I have told my new landlord I could move in by the 11th August – and hand the keys back (after a professional clean ) on the 18th has agreed above.
I have now emailed the the agent, and have been told that the LL is unhappy about this and will not be refunding me for the rest of the month 18th – 25th this should be around £430.
Am I able to get a refund or would this be dead in the water – I have honestly loved living there and have been quite frankly a model tenant – in fact I would buy the place if he wasn’t asking a crazy amount for the place.
Any help or advice on what to go back with would be great
Thank you so much
