Landlords and tenants should carefully consider the conditions for valid exercise of the break options. Tenants who wish to rely on a break option should plan the process carefully and well in front of the time frame set out in the tenancy agreement. Any deviation from the strict terms of the lease must be recorded in writing and recognized by both parties. The above case law shows that the courts will not rewrite the contact and that the terms of the lease are maintained on the basis that this is what was negotiated and agreed between the parties. The first sentence of each clause seems to indicate that the lease can be terminated at the 6-month point, but the following paragraphs suggest that the intention is that the lease may be terminated at the end of each month from the 8th month. I should see the agreement, but if such a restriction were poorly formulated, not only the restrictive conditions, but also the whole agreement, which makes it a legal lease, could be invalidated. “It may be notified that this contract is terminated at any time after 8 months after the start date” This term is sometimes referred to as the exercise or activation of the break clause. In the case of Avocet Industrial Estates Limited -v- Merol Limited (2011 EWHC 3422), a 10-year lease for a plant contained costly break provisions, with the general provision that the tenant must have fully fulfilled its obligations under the lease agreement. The duration of the tenancy agreement provided that “if an annual rent or any other amount payable under the tenancy agreement was not paid at the time of maturity, whether or not it was formally requested, the tenant pays the interest holder at the late interest rate (both before and after judgment) up to that amount for the period from the due date to the date of payment including the date of payment.” A break clause usually allows you and the landlord to terminate the lease at an early stage. I can help you with a letter when you have the facts, I should also see the agreement. Break clauses can generally be exercised on a given date, but can sometimes be rolling, for example.B. they can be exercised at any time after the expiry of a six-month period. Assuming that you did not have the opportunity to influence the clauses, I think the law states that the clauses in the consumer contracts are ambiguous, that they must be interpreted for the benefit of the party who did not write the contract.
