Section 21 eviction
You can only be sent a section 21 notice to end an assured shorthold tenancy.

Moving out before the end of the notice
You will still be liable to pay rent until the section 21 notice expires if you move out before its end date.
If you want to end your tenancy before the section 21 expires, you'll still need to follow the correct legal process to do this. How you can end your tenancy depends on whether it is fixed term or periodic.
