My Assured shorthold tenancy agreement expires 25th October and LL has issued section 21 with 3 months notice and is asking us to vacate the property by 3rd November. Section 21 was issued as we didn’t want to extend for another year and LL doesn’t want periodic terms. No issues with rent payments as we have made them always on time
We have found new property and are able to move in and vacate the property as per our ASTA on the 25th October however our letting agent is now claiming that our tenancy end date is 3rd November so liable to pay the rent until then. I feel this is not the case as our ASTA end date is 25th October and section 21 shouldn’t amend our end date. My thinking is that if we would stay beyond 25th October we would pay pro-rated rent. Please advise.
