I started my tenancy on 1st October 2016 and it’s a 12-month agreement with a 6-month break clause that’s as follows:
9.1. The Landlord agrees that the Tenant has the right to terminate the Tenancy after the first six months by giving the Landlord not less than 1 months notice in writing to be sent by first class post or hand delivery to the Landlord, to end the Tenancy. Upon the expiry of this notice this Agreement shall cease except that either Landlord or the Tenant can pursue their legal remedies against the other for any breach of any existing rights under the Agreement. To avoid any doubt between the parties it is agreed that the notice period cannot commence any earlier than 1st March 2017 and cannot expire any earlier than 30th April 2017.
Does this mean that I can end my tenancy on 1st April 2017 by giving a 1-month notice that reaches the landlord before 1st March 2017? Also, if the notice is only 1-month long then how come it can’t expire any earlier than 30th April 2017?
Thanks in advance!
