Please confirm that the tenants are the same for the August 2016 and August 2017 agreements. If this is not the case, then the deposit is not properly protected by law, but is safe for tenants. In very limited circumstances, consumer protection rules can allow you to “develop” your lease. This right applies only in the first 90 days of the contract and only applies if you can prove that you entered into the contract only on the basis of misleading information or aggressive practices. Your lease is a legal contract and you are bound by the contract until it expires. If you leave the contract before the contract expires, your landlord can sue you if you have unpaid rent. However, the owner is bound by the contract in the same way as you are. If you believe that the owner has violated the agreement significantly, you can use this argument to defend yourself in court. You need judgment, experience and a good knowledge of the local commercial real estate market. Use both your own negotiating skills and those of your advisor.
Don`t give up your position. If the owner knows you desperately want to get out of the lease, you don`t have the upper hand. Thank you for all your advice! I really appreciate it. It is very likely that we will accept the two-month break clause. Your lease tells you when the break clause may apply. For example, your break clause might indicate that you can terminate your lease 6 months after the start if you terminate 1 month in advance. I often include break clauses that allow the tenant to terminate the agreement prematurely, but not me (owner), because I understand that people`s circumstances change. You can find your landlord`s address in your rental agreement or in your rental book. Ask your landlord if you can`t find them – they have to give you the information.
If there was a minimum of six months and two months` notice and an interruption period that came into effect at 4 months, there would be a clear communication two months after the 4-month expiry, which would be correlated with the minimum duration of 6 months.

Some break clauses will say that you can only exercise the break clause after 8 months and, in such circumstances, you must terminate X months. “This contract may be terminated in writing by one of the parties, with a period of at least two months, which expires at any time after six months from the date of this agreement set out in the terms and conditions… To be fully applicable by law, break clauses must be carefully crafted with a high degree of legal expertise – these agreements must be developed by a lawyer or lawyer, or obtained by a well-known and reliable public source.
