How much notice does my landlord need to give for periodic rental contract?

We pay rent month by month after our fixed term contract ran out. We are being asked for £100 more a month on 3 weeks notice. Is this fair?

  • Usually, if you are on a monthly periodic tenancy your landlord will have to provide you with two month's written notice to leave the property. Thus, if you refuse the increase and you are served notice you can expect two month's notice to leave. If you want to remain then see if you can negotiate the increase down. (By the way you proabably only have to give a month's notice unless the contract says otherwise). Please note I am not a solicitor, you should seek legal advice regarding your particular circumstances.
