Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does he have a break clause in there at all?
Does it have a minimum period of tenancy?
Does it say there is a minimum period, or initial fixed period?
Thanks. In that case it is not clear, but from the wording what is clear is that you have to give 6 months notice.
Sadly I do not think you can get away from that as painful as it is for me to tell you that.
I agree it does not say you have to be there 12 months, but it does say about the six month notice. Therefore a Court could either say that you need to be there for the initial 12 months before you give notice, or the 6 month can be activated at any time.
Either way, sadly I think you need to give 6 months notice.
I realise this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Well I agree, its poorly worded. But unless it has a break clause in for earlier, I dont think you would be able to argue that.
Its going to be really hard, its very poorly drafted.
Does that clarify?
If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site doesn’t pay me for the time spent with you. Thanks in advance and good luck.
