Do Break Clauses Work Both Ways?

Recommended Posts

I'm on a 2 year rental with a break clause after 1 year.

Does this mean the landlord can serve us notice after 1 year?

Is the break clause for the mutual beneift of both tenenat and landlord?

I'm guessing so...

Not exactly. It depends upon the wording. The landlord cannot enforce something for his benefit unless the tenant is also given the same benefit. However, the landlord can give the tenant the benefit without having it himself. Can you tell us the exact wording of the clause? And the situation causing you to ask the question?

Rather than start a new thread, thought I would reply to this one.

We want to move out of our flat, which has a 12 month lease, with a break clause after 6 with 2 months notice. My reading of this is that we can move out on month 8 IF we give notice at month 6. Thing is, due to relocation with job, need to move out within the next month or so (which would be mnth 5).

i reckon the LL may be flexible a little, as I am sure he can fill the place again quickly as it is in good area, and we could, in the very short term (1 month or so) pay rent until he does fill it, but I think he will ask us to meet him half way with the agency fees for having to readvertise so soon.

Does anyone know how much agency fees can be (Central London) and anyone know any good tactics for not getting hit with months 5-8 rent? The deposit is 6 weeks btw

Advice from the wise please!!

Ditto

Exact wording needed otherwise we're flying blind
