Hi - the lease was drawn up by letting agents. It starts on 5 September 2004 and is for a fixed term of 12 months however it has a clause which says, 'this lease ends on 28 August 2005'

I am totally confused, now wanting to serve the two months notice - should the last day of the notice be 4 September or 28 August.

As it is still within the fixed term, you can serve a S.21 (1)(b) Notice to end the tenancy after 4 September without having to worry about the dates providing you do so before 4 July, so do it now!

Hi Paul

So I should ignore the clause which says "this lease ends on 28 August" and assume that it really ends on 4 September?
