In the tenancy agreement which was signed it states - Notwithstanding the fixed term to give to the Landlord a minimum of two months’ notice, such notice to expire at the end of the rental period, in the event that the Tenant does not wish to continue this Agreement beyond the fixed term or wishes to determine any continuation of the term.

Is this correct or can only 1 months notice be given - due to the rent being paid monthly?

FIXED TERM: No. T can walk away on term expiry without givng any Notice at all.
SUBSEQUENTLY: Similarly, T can walk away at end of any rent-payment-period (i.e. rent month) of statutory continuation tenancy without giving any Notice at all.
Both of these:
a. assume that the letting is an AST; and
b. are not very fair to L, I agree; a reasonable T will tell of intentions.
