Taken word for word from the contract

Term: the landlord lts to the tenant the propery for a period of two years ("teh term") from and incudng 27th June 2009 to and including 26th Jun 2011

Then in ending the tennancy section

Either party shall have the right to terminate this agreement by giving the other party not leass than two months advance written notice. in the case of the tenant such notice will only be effctive if snetby recorded delivery to tennancy terminatios at foxtons . This notice an only expire after the first 12 months of the tennancy.


We had over two months notice, i did point out verbally to the letting agency that it was in breach of contract.
