Some break clauses may have other conditions that you must fulfill. For example, your break clause might say you can`t have rent arrears. When a tenancy agreement ends after a break-up clause has been exercised, the rent to be paid in advance is still due and cannot be split.  For more information, see rent payment. “I give one month`s notice to finish my rent, as required by law. I will leave the property on (date xxxxx). Don`t just leave the property or place the keys in your landlord`s mailbox after you`ve reached an agreement. It should be noted that the lessor is not required to obtain a court order for detention if an insured short-term tenant activates a break clause and does not resign. However, if a tenant is an occupier with basic insurance or a flexible tenant (a form of secure rent granted for a fixed term) who activates a break clause, the landlord needs a court order if the tenant does not withdraw. Section 3 of the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 requires the lessor to obtain a court order only after the termination of a tenancy agreement and the tenant continues to reside where the tenancy agreement “is neither a statutory tenancy agreement nor an excluded tenancy agreement.” The definition of a “statutoryly protected tenancy agreement” includes a short and guaranteed fixed-price lease, but not a secure or flexible tenancy agreement (or a tenant with only basic insurance).  This is also explained in section 11.5 of our lease.
The tenant clause then says “cannot take effect… and “can`t do without it…” ». They seem to me to think essentially the same thing, but they have different data, which makes them ambiguous. David also wrote: “If the contract started on August 1, 2017 with a six-month break clause, which you consider to be the earliest break on February 1, December 1 was the earliest day to communicate it.” This is not true: December 1 is the late date on which notification can be made (and it can close it); may be communicated at any time before December 1 (in this example). It is always best to give a few days over the 2 months to allow delays in the delivery of the communication In case after the 6 months both parties are happy to continue the lease, the lease can be either rolled on a periodic lease or a new lease can be established. For example, an owner may give you a one-year contract without a break clause and tell you that you must tell them for 2 months of your intention to terminate the contract. Such an agreement would not be applicable, since the contract expires anyway at the end of the period. Such conditions are usually in place, so a landlord can receive an appropriate notification to get a new tenant and, of course, it is advisable to know a landlord if you wish to stay.
