Neil, That article by Tessa was written seven years ago and whilst still relevant to a degree has at least in part been corrected and superseded by the Abandonment legislation linked to by Gary above.... Read More

Gary, I knew something had been introduced but had never read it until now (I have had no need to) so thanks for the link.. What a convoluted mess the timing of the warning notices is, I'm trying to get my head around it and I think I need to draw out a timeline to do so!

Should we have been given notice?

Diane, you wrote:
"I'm also not suggesting we should be allowed to pick and choose our leaving date just that I didn't realise the notice period was from the rent payment date as that wasn't specifically pointed out to us."

I'm sure all of that will be in your Tenancy Agreement and therefore it was not changed it was just that you maybe had not read it properly. My advice would be not to give notice until you have a fixed completion date. If that means you leave before the end of the Tenancy at least it allows you plenty of time to move your stuff out (Less pressure to find a removal company and easier on you on the day) and also as you say time to prepare the property you are leaving....
