Hi, after some advice this is my first rented property.

we are (hopefully) going to be moving soon. 

We signed a 12 month contract with break clause after 6, 

Canwe give notice of 1 month any time now as 6months is 26th June?(1month is how much notice we need to give)

can i Give notice to end e.g 10th July? Rent will already be paid for July (I.e. Paid 26th of each month in advance) 

or will my notice need to be for 25/26th of July? 

Hope some 1 can help/explain in basic terms? 🙂

thanks in advance

Hi Wayne- how and when you can serve notice will be specific to your tenancy. Some require notice to be served on a specifric date each month, others can be served at any time, some 6 month Break Clause only are effective on 1 date, others can be used at any time after its permission- so read your contract carefully.

Generally Tenants in the UK are only required to give 1 months written notice but you must abide by other applicable terms. Some contracts require 2 months notice however there is a debate over how enforceable this is as UK law only requires 1.

Hope that helps- Kristjan
