Has you landlord served you with a s21 Housing Act notice requiring possession at the end of the fixed term?Tom
If he has served a valid s21 notice upon you and you do not leave then he will use the acclerated possession procedure to get an order for possession within about a month (possible a little bit more). You would be liable to the rent and costs during this time so if the order comes in the second month you could find yourself be liable for a further months rent on top of the extra one that you will actually be there.
There is nothing in law to compel the landlord to let you remain at the propety for a further month on the same rent as you were on in the fixed term of the tenancy. If they had not served the notice then you could simply stay and the tenancy would become a statutory periodic tenancy, pay that months rent at the tenancy rate and serve your own notice to quit at the end of the rent period. I would negotiate down from the £1, 350.00 to something like £1, 275.00 and take it. It's better than there obtaining an order for possession and then getting a county court judgement for possibly 2 months rent.
Sorry it could not be better news.
