Legally, when a tenant signs for a fixed term tenancy, he signs exactly for that. So at the end of the fixed term, no matter what it says in the tenancy agreement, if the tenant wants to leave on the last day of the fixed term, he can just hand you the keys and walk away - no notice whatsoever is required. If, however, the tenant stays just one day longer than the fixed term, the tenancy becomes statutory periodic, and one calendar month's notice in writing is required - this notice does not necessarily have to end at the end of a period of the tenancy (most judges would think it unfair not to accept).
