Hello,

During a email discussion with the letting agency that we used to find our flat with, the agency said:

“I am pleased to confirm your landlord would like to renew your tenancy agreement. The terms will be for a 12 tenancy with a 6 month break clause and 2 month notice period at a weekly rental of £410.00pw.”

First, I assume this means that I can end the contract on month 10 if I give notice on month 8? (sorry if that is a stupid question)

Second, I see no mention of the break cause in the actual contract I signed, does this mean I can no longer evoke the break cause?

Thanks

Colin

“6 months break clause and 2 month notice period”

This means that you can end the tenancy in the 6th month, if you give notice in the beginning of the 4th month. Then, you may end the tenancy on the end of month 12. 

The break clause should be in the tenancy agreement, and I would demand the tenancy agreement being edited and the clause included before you sign.
