Not all break clauses are the same, with some indicating exactly how to terminate an agreement. While others only ask that you notify the owner or senior agent. Normally, you should take a one-month delay before the break clause enters. When developing or negotiating the break clause in your lease, make sure it is clear how long it will take before it can be implemented by both parties. You have a break clause, but you want to leave before it says you can or you missed the time of the break clause now you can still go, but you will end up being responsible if you leave prematurely, without there being a break clause for owner fees, this must be real and not have a falsified daily amount or administration fee. The details of the activation of a break clause are clearly stated in the AST. And break clauses can usually be activated at any time as soon as they become active. If your break clause starts after six months, you should be able to activate it at any time after the six months. If your landlord agrees to have a new tenant, make sure you receive your landlord`s agreement in writing. The agreement must make it clear that your lease is over and that a new lease has been created for the new tenant.

You did not say whether it was a common or one-time lease. If a common tenancy agreement, then all common tenants must agree to end an early rent, including the exercise of a break clause. I have spoken twice with my roommate about the break clause, and she has agreed orally and in writing to break the lease in May, but she has often said that she has money problems and that she may change her mind about termination. To break the lease, we both have an obligation to make a communication, my communication will not be sufficient. In addition, the termination clause itself states that they need a written communication from both of us to terminate the contract, which I do not think is fair. This actually happened with the other lease, where the agency stated that they could not take into account a simple communication, but in this case we have two notifications and we left after the initial 12-month period to move into the new house. Does that mean that if she wants to stay and I want to leave, I can`t leave the lease and I`m stuck with someone who doesn`t want to accept that we`re equal in the contract? I have read on the Internet that in the case of collective rental, agencies or landlords expect us to solve our own problems, but the only solution to this problem is the violation of rent and rent separately. Should I involve the Agency and inform it of these recurring problems and ask it to take action? I would not object to being removed from the contract as long as I have recovered my share of the deposit, but if I give up, I doubt that she will return the money to me immediately because of her money problems – the lease clearly states that if one tenant leaves, the other must repay the part of the deposit.
