The minimum notice period a landlord must give a tenant to end a tenancy is governed by law – not the contract (Tenancy Agreement).

If the landlord requires possession of the property without giving any reason they must serve a Section 21 notice giving the tenant at least 2 months notice. (Can only be used for a shorthold tenancy)

If the landlord wants possession of the property before the end of the fixed term of the tenancy they must serve a Section 8 notice giving the tenant at least 14 days notice citing one or more of the 17 grounds (reasons) for possession e.g. Tenant is 2 or more months in arrears with rent. (Can be used for any assured tenancy)

Longer tenancies sometimes include break clauses that allow the landlord or tenant to end the tenancy early for any reason but the notice period would be longer than that required by law.
