Following the deregulation act my understanding was that all Section 21 notices during a periodic tenancy no longer needed to end on the last day of a rental period but I've read that for contractual periodic tenancies the old rules (notice to end on last day of a period) apply. Any clarification would be appreciated.

De-regulation Act, Section 35

Notice to be provided in relation to periodic assured shorthold tenancies

In section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 (recovery of possession on termination of shorthold tenancy), after subsection (4) insert—
“(4ZA)In the case of a dwelling-house in England, subsection (4)(a) above has effect with the omission of the requirement for the date specified in the notice to be the last day of a period of the tenancy.”
