I am currently renting a flat on a fixed term contract. Every year, the landlord (a company that manages patrimony) sends me a letter that is a notice unless I agree to sign for another 1-year fixed term. This year, I know I am going to leave town shortly after the renewal date, does it mean I have to find another accommodation for a month or so ? Do they have a right to do that ?

Thanks for posting in our forum.

If you plan to move out in two months after the renewal date, then what you can do is give 8 weeks’ notice from the end of the fixed period, instead of signing the renewal. (This is fairly standard, but always check your tenancy agreement for details that outline what is expected of you when giving notice.)

If you would like a little more time, you can always request this, but the landlord/company are under no obligation to agree to it. Unfortunately, they are legally permitted to serve you a notice to quit at the end of the fixed period.

It is very hard to coincide moving out and moving in dates! Good luck and let us know how you get on.
