I am a private tenant and just gave a month notice to my Landlord. Moving out date is 21st of June according to the agreement.We already resigned at our workplaces and get a van to move us back to our country but the problem is that our landlord replied that we should have given 2 months notice instead of 1 month as is written in the agreement.
So we checked it and it says we should give 2 months notice….honestly we forget that and just realised when he wrote it and now he wants us to leave the flat in 21st of July and this way he get his 2 months notice. It is not possible as we arranged everything already. My question is that he can force us to stay here or not getting back the deposit?
We always payed the rent in time, there is no damages in the house and kept it very tidy and he liked the way we kept our thing in the house so he was always satisfied and just because of 1 months we don`t want to loose the deposit which is nearly a thousand pounds. Does someone has a similar problem or ever had?Can you give us some advice, please?
