I have let a flat out to the same tenant since Feb 2009 and drew the contract up myself, signed by myself and the tenants. These are only my second tenant and I have never had to serve a notice in the past.
The contract states "where contract is to be terminated, there is to be a period of notice of 1 calendar month for both landlord and tenant."
I would appreciate any advice on:
- if this contract is legally binding (no solicitors were involved)
- if this period of notice is acceptable under any laws I am unaware of
- what is the formal way I need to serve a notice.
Many thanks in advance
