We have been renting the property we live in since 28th November 2014. After the initial 6 months, we have simply extended by another 6 months at a time. Our current extension ends 27/11 this year.
We are now in the process of buying our own house and it appears we will complete in early August. Whilst we would like a slight overlap, this could leave us with 3 months.
We have found the following break clause in our tenancy –
1 – this agreement creates a tenancy that starts with a fixed term and then becomes periodic. This would normally guarantee both parties the rights and obligations for the fixed term and a minimum of one period. The following clause allows the landlord to terminate the agreement earlier than that date.
2 – the landlord my bring the tenancy to an end at any time after the first 6 months by giving to the tenant at least two months written notice stating that the landlord requires possession of the property.
3 – if the tenant intends to vacate at the end of the fixed term, or at any later date, he agrees to give the landlord at least one months notice in writing.
Does this mean that we can give one months notice?
