Can you clarify the break clause - the lease is .

This answer was rated:

Hi, Can you clarify the break clause  - the lease is for 12months.  Does the following mean the first 4 month of the 12 month lease period or the 4 months after the 12 month has elapsed?
1.5. Any time after four months of the initial fixed Term of this tenancy (or after a similar period following a fixed Term extension to the original tenancy) either party may invoke this break clause by providing a minimum of two months written notice to the other (such notice to expire on the last day of a rental period of the tenancy). At the end of such notice the tenancy shall end and all obligations and responsibilities shall cease; subject nevertheless to any claim by either party against the other in respect of any breach of any of the terms and conditions of the agreement.
It would seem to say that notice can be given after the first four months. It specifically refers to the first four months of the initial fixed term. That can have no other meaning.Is that all you wanted to know ?Jo

or is it four month of the initial term and this refers to within the term?
Four months of the initial term is what it says. That might not be what it meant but that is what it says.
