Customer Question

I signed a 12 months contract with a state agent to rent the house I live with my family. The contract has a clause that allows us to break the 12 months after 6 months. For that we had to give notice only 4 months into the contract. We then wrote to the state agent saying we would not be staying for the 12 months but did not have a date for moving yet. The landlord verbally agreed for us to be able to leave provided we give 2 month notice. Is that legal?
We were able to give only one month notice only.
