I have decided to move aout of my shared accomodation (after 5 years) and despite having my rent covered for up to the 27th of this month, I have been told that my landlady requests 1 months notice at the start of the rental payment. Basically I have to pay another month’s rent for next month despite having moved out 2 days ago.
I’ve been told by the estate agents who manage the house that if I do not pay next months rent (which coveres the whole of august) and despite having already left, that I would be taken to court.
Can someone please explain what legal right I have. I find it unfair that I have to pay next months rent too, the notice of leaving should start on the day that I request it. To make things worse, she is a full time lawyer who manages many other properties.
