I was served 2 months notice to move out of a rental house recently by letter as the landlord wanted their house back. However, a few weeks later and having had no subsequent contact from the estate agent/landlord, I was wondering what would happen if someone in a similar situation claimed to, or actually did not, receive the letter.
The letter was not sent via recorded delivery, maybe that's normally what happens and it solves this problem? Essentially though there is no proof I received the letter whatsoever and they are required to give two months notice. So it may be a week before moving date and the landlord contacted the tenant asking how moving out was going etc. and the tenant has no idea what they were talking about because the letter got lost.
Would they then be required to give 2 months notice from that point on, or could they just claim they served the notice and kick the tenant out anyway?
