if the tenant desires to surrender the whole of the accom he shall first by notice in writing to the Agent or to the Landlord offer to terminate this Agreement on the terms (i) that the Tenant shall remain fully responsible under the terms of this agreement until a suitable new tenancy has commenced and (ii) that in the event that such new tenant shall be found the tenant shall pay to the agent a reletting free.........
I guess my question is when did the subsequent agreement legally come into effect - when I signed it, or when the first agreement expired.
On these facts, you are committed until sixmonths from 13 June.
The term is the term in the agreement.
It is not relative to the date it is signed.
You can sign an agreement after the termstarts you can sign an agreement before the term starts.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
