Our six month lease was due to expire and we didn’t want to sign a new one, so we asked to go on a periodic tenancy. The agent wasn’t keen but eventually we got an email saying OK, but the landlord was asking us to give two months’ notice if we decided to leave.
We didn’t reply to that email. Time went by, our lease expired and the agent didn’t ask us to sign a new lease or to confirm our agreement to those terms.
My question – does that email have legal force? Do we have to give two months’ notice or can we just give the usual one month?
