We have 14 months left and I would like to break the tenancy. Our contract had a business break clause for the landlord which would allow him to give 2 months notice post August 2016. Can I use that same clause?

What does it says in the break clause ? If it’s only for the landlord, you probably can’t use it. On the other hand, I don’t know if it’s unfair for a property contract to offer a break clause to only one party and not the other. 

If that is the case then neither can use the break clause, as it becomes unenforceable. 

Why do you want to break the tenancy ? If it’s for repairs and maintenance issues, it’s going to be easier to get the landlord to fix them than getting the tenancy to end (without the landlord’s agreement).
