Not until 5th December 2013. It is a one year contract with a 2 month break clause at 10 months.
Thank you for your information, this is really helpful. One additional question, the estate agent will not start to re market the property until I pay them £300 and sign a letter stating that I agree to the cover the landlords cost of reletting of £600 and that I will cover the rent until a new tenant is found.
In the aim to simply resolve this quickly and move, I have replied saying that I will pay the £300 so that advertising can begin but won't sign the letter whilst I am seeking legal advice. I handed my notice in, giving two months, in writing on the 17th December. Can I insist that they start to readvertise the property if i pay the £300 but without the signed letter ?
