You are correct in regards ***** ***** current 6 month notice period from the landlord under covid19 law, there are exceptions to that, such as fraud, domestic abuse, anti social behaviour etc.
As for the tenant giving notice. Yes two months notice must be given. However, in relation to the break clause which is contained in section 31.6 of the tenancy agreement, if the agreement is for 12 months, then the break clause can be utilised after the tenancy has been active for 6 months and then by giving 2 months notice.
If the tenancy is for 6 months, then the brake clause will not apply to the tenancy.
Section 33 would need to read in conjunction with section 31. Section 31 is the main section containing the break clause, section 33 basically reconfirms the 2 months notice that would be required.
