We are landlords and our tennants are coming to the end of thier tennancy in 2 days, and have just called to tell us they do not want to continue the contract and will be moving out immediatley. Looking at the open rent contract it says that if the tennancy is within the fixed term the landlord may serve notice to the tennant with 2 months notice but nothing about the occupants serving the landlord notice. Unless the fixed term has passed and they are on a periodic tenanncy in which case they must give 1 months notice.
I’ve never not had tennants give 1 months notice before moving, however they seem to believe that due to the contract being a fixed term they do not have to. Please help?
