How to interpret one clear calendar month’s notice?Make Text Bigger
My tenant gave notice on 23 November. ( currently on periodic tenancy)
His lease period runs from 15th – 14th of each month.
I had presumed that he was required to give one clear tenancy period’s notice in writing (i.e. must end on the last day of a tenancy period) . In other words one calendar month from when he served his notice takes him to 24th December. However, since this is not the end of a rental period, he is required pay rent one last time on 15 December, and his tenancy would officially end on 14 January. Right?
BUT the following wording confuses me.
9.5.1 The Tenancy may be terminated at any time after the fixed Term by either party by serving one clear calendar month’s written notice upon the other, and in the case of the Landlord only such notice is to expire at the end of a rent period.” Does this mean my tenant’s calendar month’s notice does not need to expire at the end of a rent period?
In summary, how do I interpret the wording “one clear calendar months’ notice” combined with “and in the case of the Landlord only” as it pertains to my tenant?
