Please could someone advice at your earliest convenience what the above phrase means?
Initially I was in a 6 months contract with house agency. I started living in the house from 1st of the month. However after two lots of 6 months completed, I opted for a month to month contract.
I would like to terminate the contract and thus I gave a notice period from the 15th of September – 14th October.
The agency is not agreeing, and says that the notice period should be from the 1st of the month.
In addition to this, a new tenant has accepted the offer to take on the same house once I leave. The new tenants starting date is 21st October.
The agency has advised me that I should pay until the date the new tenant moves in ie until 20th October, because ideally my termination should be from start of the month ie 1st October to 31st October.. and that the inspection will take place after I leave and if any damage is done, will need a week to sort out before the new tenant starts living in it.
I requested that the inspection should be done prior to my leaving date (i.e. inspection on the same day), and that once I hand over the keys, it will not be my responsibility thereafter, nor will I be liable for anything.
Please could someone advise on the following:
1) is the agency correct in saying that the notice period should be from the 1st of the month, because I initially started living in the house from the 1st of the month?
2) if the notice period to 14th October is acceptable, can the agency force me to pay until the 20th October, because the new tenant is moving in the house on the 21st October?
Your help is much appreciated.
