Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is Alex and 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.
Sadly the clause is clear - you need to give 2 months notice at 6 months.
But if you explain the situation to the Landlord they may be open to allow you to leave.
After all it would be far better that you leave than rack up arrears, not be able to pay, the Landlord pays for Court proceedings and you move out.
That is how you need to sell it.
But sadly the contract is clear, you need to give 2 months notice at 6 months
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
