I was served 2 months notice to move out of my flat as my landlady had decided to sell it.
I have found a flat to move into but half way through the second month. I have paid the full month’s rent but am moving out on the 18th and the rent month ends on the last day of the month. I have checked with my letting agents many times whether I am getting my overpaid rent back. They have not given me a direct answer or don’t seem to know. They have said they will contact the landlady to ask for the overpaid rent back but they have still not confirmed with me whether I am getting it back.
The way I see it, they served notice on me and I found the most suitable, affordable flat for me under time pressure so they should pay me the overpaid rent back even if I am leaving early. The notice for me to leave said I had to leave within two months so I feel I have done that and should be paid back the overpaid rent for the month.
Can somebody please give me advice on what my rights are in this situation?
