I took an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement on 19th October 2010. I paid one months rent in advance on 19th October and the next rent payment was 20th November. The tenancy period was 12 months with a two months notice period to end the tenancy. The letting agents have never sent a new Shorthold Tenancy Agreement after the initial 12 months. Therefore am I correct in saying that the tenancy has now moved to a Periodic Tenancy and therefore only one months notice is required?
Secondly, I would like to give notice this week. However as my rent is paid on the 20th of each month I believe my notice period would start from next month, and based on one month notice my tenancy would end on 19th May? Also, the one months rent paid in advance, does that effectively mean that after paying rent on the 20th of this month, then no rent is paid in April as it was already received in advance when I took the tenancy on.
I’m new to all this and would really appreciate some guidance especially when the letting agents have been a nightmare throughout the tenancy I.e. 5 weeks without central heating and 3 weeks without a fridge/freezer!!!
