Try this.  You need to cast the text as a date data type.
LastMonth = CDate(gridHouse.TextMatrix(gridHouse.Rows - 1, 1))

"Aug\2014" can't be converted to a date.

Try:
LastMonth = Replace(gridHouse.TextMatrix(gridHouse.Rows - 1, 1), "\","")

I see that a space got lost in my code (third Replace argument)

It should have been:
LastMonth = Replace(gridHouse.TextMatrix(gridHouse.Rows - 1, 1), "\"," ")

If it is a backslash, instead of the front slash you originally posted, you can do something similar to what GrahamSkan suggested and change the backslash character.
LastMonth = CDate(Replace(gridHouse.TextMatrix(gridHouse.Rows - 1, 1), "\","/"))

backslash (\)
LastMonth = Replace(gridHouse.TextMatrix(gridHouse.Rows - 1, 1), "\", "") returns the same error

Sorry. My first comment had a typo in the code. The second version should work.
