    6 months break clause 3rd Oct 17 at 4:00 PM
    Please help me understand if I am able to give notice right before the 6th month to be able to leave the property on the 8th month of the tenancy agreement based on this paragraph in the agreement :

    12. The parties agree
    It is hereby agreed and understood between the parties that the Tenant and the Landlord shall have the right to terminate Tenancy hereby created by giving not less than 60 days notice. In the case of the Tenant, such notice is to be delivered in writing by email or registered post to take effect on next or later rent payment day, shall be served not sooner than the end of the 4th of Tenancy Agreement and, in any case, expire only at any time after the first 6 months from the commencement of the Tenancy. Under the contract, the minimum period of the Tenancy shall therefore be 6 months.

    Thank you!

    That clause could be invalid, but yes in theory you can give notice now, to expire 60 days from your next rent due date.


    (Clause is terribly written too - god some agents are so stupid!)

    I can leave on the 6th, 7th, 8th ... any month after the 6th as long as I gave 60 days notice before the rent day.

    No, it says the 60 day notice must take effect on the next or future rental pay date.


    So whatever date you pay rent + 60 days


    its a terrible attempt at legalese

    You can serve notice any time after th end of month 4.

    Provided you do so in time for 60 days to pass, you can end the tenancy at the end of month 6.

    You can serve notice on any subsequent date, but al least 60 days must pass between serving notice, and a rent payment day when you can end the tenancy.

    So provided you serve notice in time, you can end on the 7th, 8th or any subsequent rent payment date

    Looks like a bodged version of standard break clause agreement. You can give 60 days (2 months) notice after 4th month to leave at end of 6th month (the min let period) so no need to wait until eight months.
