The only part is the following with regards XXXXX XXXXX early, which is located on the front page of the document (cover sheet) and not placed or expressed in a clause.
Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement
For letting an Unmanaged Residential Dwelling
Important Notes for the Tenants
- This tenancy agreement is a legal and binding contract and the Tenant is responsible for payment of the rent for the entire agreement term. The agreement may not be terminated early unless the agreement contains a
break clause, or written permission is obtained from the Landlord.
" End Quote.
Then within the actual clauses (1.0 to 10.0), the only parts which covers Ending of the tenancy is C(3)(25), C(3)(30)-(33) and C(8)(3) as follows:
Attached is the page within the Terms of Business between myself and the letting agent, although I assume this does not cover the agreement between me and the landlord. Excuse the large image.
It seems quite specific to me.There is no early termination date.
The agreement says "if thereis..." which there isnt, so it doesn't apply.
You are liable until the endof the term or until the Landlord gets another tenant if you do move outearlier.
You do have to give 1 monthnotice to leave even at end of term.

Many Thanks for your answer.
I did have a feeling this would be the case which has been confirmed now; there is one minor thing which I suppose your experience can give an answer too more then anything.
In a contract or even a tenancy agreement say, the front page has the title of the document, general notes on and guidance on but does not constitute a clause within the contract.
Is that correct if the second page starts with (This Agreement is made...).
Again, thanks for your answer. Great help :)
Definitions and headings are usually specifically excluded.
If there was a disgareement whether something was part or not the court would look at the intention of the agreemnent rather than the form.
The agreement starts at "This agreement" if properly drafted.
Look at recent long property lease to see what I mean. There are several pages before "This Lease.."
