Letting - Section 21 Notice

Hiya, need some advice here. We moved into a place on 16/11/12 and signed a one year contract so the tenancy end stated on the contract is 16/11/13. We received our final bill for the month of November a few days ago and they are charging us an extra 4 days up until 20/11/13. We totally didn't budget for this and have signed a contact to move into a new place on 16/11 so will be paying two lots of rent for the first few days, it might not sound like much money but both places are quite expensive and we have a very small margin for overspending - this exceeds it! I have read the contract over and over and there is no mention of this section 21 notice anywhere. I queried with the estate agent and they seem to think this is all above board. Maybe it is above board and we are banged to rights here, but either way I would love a second opinion before we are forced to hammer into the credit cards! Thanks!

  • A section 21 notice is a legal document from a landlord for you to move out with 2 months notice, it's not a bill. If your contract runs till the 16th, you are entitled to pay rent till then, and move out on that date. A section 21 notice makes no difference, it's about the landlord regaining possession of the property. Any problems contact your local citizens advice.
