Generally, a month means a calendar month. This is provided by the Law of Property Act 1925 Section 61, and applies to all deeds, contracts and other instruments governed by UK law unless the contract otherwise requires.

Otherwise, it meant ‘lunar month’1. ‘Calendar month’ does not necessarily mean a month as it appears
