Renting with no contract

My boyfriend & I have been renting a house for 4 months. Our landlord didn't want a contact keeping the arrangement very informal. However we have just bought a house and want to leave our rented accommodation asap. We have given 1 months notice but have since found out that 3 months is more normal here. We are considering paying for the extra months as we want to do what is right, but at the same time we had no contract so do we have a legal obligation here??? Hmm bit of a tricky situation I think!!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Miss T

Re: Renting with no contract

Best coure of action is to talk to your landlord. If he is happy with one months notice then it is not an issue.

Be honest with your landlord and see if the landlord is happy with 1 month? Oral agreements can be held legal and your landlord's opinion of the agreement may be different from yours.

Well, no contract of renting ? no obligation. You took a risk and your landlord too...

You still can propose somebody to replace you.
