Hi, I’m wondering if anyone can help me please. I’m in private rented property and have been in this house for 7.5 years. I renewed my tenancy in December for 12 months. I now have an opportunity to buy my own house and it would mean breaking my contract. 

My tenancy agreement has a “break clause”. Could someone read over it and let me know if I just have to give 2 months notice and how to word the letter to the agent please? Also, am I going to lose my deposit by doing this? 

“Break clause- either party has the right to terminate this agreement by giving the other party not less than two months advanced notice in writing. This notice can not expire within the first 6 months of the tenancy”

 

thanks in advance

Hi

 

As you signed a new fixed term tenancy agreement in Dec 2018, sadly as you are probably aware from the 'break clause' you now have to wait for 6 months before notifying them in writing of your 2 month 'notice to quit'.

 

It does not stop you trying to negotiate with the Landlord (make sure anything agreed is in writing).

you can leave with a mutual agreement so speak to LL directly about this.

The changes to S 21 that came in 3 days ago may make him happy to let you go on your way anyway
