Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Does it specify the period is minimum or it can be terminated by 2 weeks notice please?
It states that we agree for me to vacate on a certain date. It also states that it can be terminated by 2 weeks notice (ie before that date). Monies have been paid by me in full to the vacation date.
What is the exact wording of the 2 week notice clause please>
"As discussed, we will review the situation every few weeks as to how we all feel things are working. If deemed necessary there will be a 2 week notice period given from either party, this being contrary to the original agreement." (original agreement 1 month)
Yes but what is the wording of the exact clause, if any
This was written separately to the original agreement
After the original agreement was signed?
5 months after
Then the original agreement of 3 months stands.
He can't then say its 2 weeks notice.
That is not valid. The Landlord is trying to vary the agreement.
The contract states 3 months so that is what you can have
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
the original agreement stated 1 month
OK - then 1 month is then notice period
It can't be changed except with consent.
We both consented to extend the notice period
to 3 months
OK. If you have this then that is binding.
Further to our discussion today, we are writing to confirm that we have agreed to extend the notice period for you to vacate the annex.
If it was agreed, then that is binding
You therefore have 3 months
You therefore have 3 months.
As discussed, we will review the situation every few weeks as to how we all feel things are working. If deemed necessary there will be a 2 week notice period given from either party, this being contrary to the original agreement." (original agreement 1 month)
Yes but you have 3 months period.
ok thank you so much
Can I clarify anything else?
yes, the additional two week clause is therefore invalid?
