Owners think they can write any old crap in a lease, but that doesn`t make it valid or enforceable. Personally, I would prefer to simply expose my tenant with a 6-month lease (that`s the minimum allowed). In this way, the tenant or landlord, if he wishes to terminate the lease, can waive a break clause. But also, and perhaps more importantly, if the tenant refuses to evacuate the landlord after a valid notice of ownership (section 21), the judge should grant immediate possession, not ask questions, because the fixed duration of the tenant would have. Personally, I don`t use break clauses in my leases, which is due to the fact that they don`t seem convincing (from what I`ve read and told), which makes them somewhat scary for me. Let me explain… The lessor should give the new person his own lease or license agreement – otherwise you will continue to be legally responsible for the lease. If you stay in your home after the end of the fixed term (even for a single day), your lease or license will automatically be periodic, unless your landlord offers you a new fixed-term contract or terminates the lease or license. It is important to respect the specific text of the clause or the notice may not be valid. Although errors in a communication do not necessarily disprove it, provided they are clear in all circumstances, the error is obvious and the recipient can certainly count on it.  Here is an example of a break clause (please do not use it without seeking legal advice): I can help you with a letter when you have the facts, I should also see the agreement.
With respect to the disclosure of the two tenants, the most important thing the agreement says is why I have proposed to review it. Otherwise, a penalty must be paid and this can often be used to reach an agreement. If you have a periodic agreement, you must indicate the notice period set in your agreement. If the agreement does not say how much termination is required, it depends on whether you have an excluded lease or an excluded license. Please confirm that the tenants are the same for the August 2016 and August 2017 agreements. If this is not the case, then the deposit is not properly protected by law, but is safe for tenants. As far as bail is concerned, it depends on the agreements. If both agreements were for the same tenant and the same property, and that is the DPS deposit system, then the deposit is properly protected. If one of the first two was not filled, it should have been protected again. Otherwise, if it is the insured system, you should consult the terms and conditions of the system or ask the DPS.
