Hi there, my landlord has given me 2 month’s notice because she wants to sell the house. I may have already found somewhere and only received the notice last week., She says I still need to give one month’s notice. I have been here nearly two years and it’s a shorthold tenancy with the initial period being 6 months. Thanks

Yes, you still need to make sure that you give the right period of notice. You can ask the landlord to surrender the tenancy (make sure you get the agreement in writing if she agrees) but if she won’t then you need to give the notice. You could always offer a compromise of two weeks notice so that you don’t lose your new place? If she agrees, again, get it in writing.
