Hi, I am happy to assist you by chatting online. You are quite correct- a Tenant is free to walk away and leave the property on the date the fixed term ends ie 15th September, without giving any prior notice to the Landlord whatsoever. Clause 7.1 of the Tenancy applies only in the case where you wanted to end the Tenancy after 6 months but before the end of the fixed term. The Landlord is indeed therefore trying to bully you, and I confirm that all you do need to do is to vacate on the 15th and hand back the keys. I hoe this helps you and confirms the legal position. If I have helped, please could you leave feedback. Thanks Al
Hi Rim, yes I was- to be honest, I only needed to see the first page as it is a standard Agreement, and confirms it is for a fixed term of 12 months- the law is therefore quite clear- you are free to leave at the end of the fixed term full stop. Don't let him bully you! All the best Al
