I may have potential new tenants for my flat in June 2016. However, the potential tenants are not sure if they can leave their current tenancy. I am not certain if the agreement is stating that they can give notice after the initial 6 months. Please help.
Their original terms of tenancy:
The Landlord lets to the Tenant for a period of 12 months and 0 days. The tenancy shall start on and include the 21/12/2014 and shall end on and include the 20/12/2015. Either the Landlord or the Tenant shall have the right to terminate the tenancy, by giving not less than 2 months notice in writing to that effect, not to be served before six months of the term have expired and upon the expiration of such and everything herein contained shall cease and be void subject nevertheless to the right of the parties in respect of any antecedent breach of any of the covenants herein contained. The period of notice must expire at the end of a period being on the 20th day of a month.
The tenants have signed again with that landlord in Dec 2015 – this time with a Memorandum of Agreement:-
It has been agreed between the Tenant and the Landlord that the agreement shall be extended on the same terms and conditions as the said agreement for a further 12 months from 21 December 2015 to 20 December 2016.
