We have an AST thats been extended “to and including 1st May 2015 (“the Termination Date”)” upon the same terms and conditions of the Agreement.
We have recently been issued a Section 21(1)(b) which expires on 30th June 2015 (three months, the same as the notice period on our AST).
We are therefore unsure of our rights from 1st May 2015 to 30th June 2015. We have been told by the Agency we are liable for all rent and bills until 30th June 2015 but this seems strange as our contract ends on 1st May 2015 so surely after this point it becomes Periodic and we can give 1 months notice (as we may monthly).
Please can someone provide some clarification on our rights from 1st May 2015 to 30 June 2015? We are being asked by Estate Agencies when we can move in to a new property and we are unsure what answer to give to avoid paying double rent.
