Hi there,

what is your specific question, please?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I uploaded the tenancy agreement. I just want to make sure I have one month notice period without being binded to pay for 6 months or 1 year. The contract says: this agreement shall commence on the 1st October 2020 until 30th September 2021 at a rent of £750..... It is hereby agreed, wither party may serve one calendar month written notice to end the tenancy
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Does it mean that I can end the contract even in December 2020 without being binded for 1 year?
Expert:  Vineet S replied 4 days ago.

Thank you for your reply. I will go through the attached tenancy agreement & will be with you shortly.

Expert:  Vineet S replied 4 days ago.

Hi there,

Either party, (you or Landlord) can terminate this tenancy by giving one month notice in writing .

So, you can terminate it anytime by giving one month notice to the Landlord, thus are not tied in the fixed term till Sept end 2021.
