Can someone clarify for me (I know theres umpteen thousands threads on here about it but this is one area I cant get my head around);

AST began on 20th July 2007, fixed term for 6 months (ending 19th January 2008). Deposit protected etc. At same time tenant issued with a s21(1)(b) notice which states;

I give you noice under section 21 of the housing act 1988 that I require possesion of the dwelling know as (XXAdressXX) after 19/01/2008.

Tenant has stayed on in a periodic, is the above notice still valid? what notice period does tenant have to give? usual 1 months ending on the 19th of a month? or leave at anytime as possiesion is required after 19/01/2008?

Cheers in advance.

Notice is still valid as a S.21 does not have an expiry date. Tenant can leave at any time they wish.
