6 Or 12 Month Let

2 posts in this topic

Just negotiating renewal on my tenancy with a new agent - been in the house 3 years now - agent changed about 4 months ago. New tenancy letter is offering both a 6 or 12 month agreement (ours about to end is for 12 months) with a break clause in of 1 month (for us if we exercise the break at ANY time) or 2 months for the landlord (to exercise at any time). Not seen this before and at first glance seems to undermine the whole idea of a fixed tenancy agreement as it can be ended by either party before the 6 or 12 month is up.

Anyone seen this before and/ or got any advice please? I'd quite like to go for the 12 months WITH a break clause (meaning I can leave at ANY time with 1 month's notice) but the downside is the landlord can get me out with 2 month's notice at ANY time as well.

Bit unsure what to do really - we can go for the tenancy without the break if we want to.

Are you sure there isn't a fixed term AFTER which the break is excersisable, otherwise you'll just be, unneccessarily, paying agents fees for a statutory periodic tenancy.
