    Hi, when a tenant is giving 56 days notice to end their tenancy, can the notice be served on a weekend or bank holida?

    For example if the notice is given on a Saturday via email to the estate agent, will day 1 be the Sunday?

    Notice periods are in calendar days, and notice can be served on any day; doesn't matter if it's a weekend or a holiday. Notice should be served in writing, however, and I'm not sure that an email would technically count. It definitely isn't allowed for a notice from the landlord to the tenant.

    Tenant notice treated differently best if you contact LL or agent and agree date and after can confirm by email or writing

    You need to send notice to the landlord in writing- or if not in writing, you need to ensure that they acknowledge receipt of it.

    Its different than it is for tenants- its less strict- but you still need to ensure that your notice is acknowledged, if not being furnished in the prescribed format.

    In the case as outlined- if you give notice on a Saturday or a bankholiday by e-mail to a letting agent- the notice starts on the next working day- not on the day that you send the notice- unless you receive acknowledgement of your notice on the day on which its sent......
