    Break Clause

    Hi everyone, I am currently redrafting my AST's, I have read through the new tenants fees legislation and I am a bit confused about a few issues.

    Firstly from the RLA guidelines:

    Where the tenants have requested early surrender of the tenancy, the landlord or agent may charge fees equivalent to the loss incurred. As charges such as referencing, tenancy drafting, etc are prohibited landlords will not be able to show a loss has been incurred for the provision of these services. Instead, landlords and agents will be able to charge the equivalent of the rent lost due to the unforeseen void period. As the void period may not be clear at the point of charging many landlords and agents will likely start to regularly refuse tenants looking to surrender early as a result.

    CAN I WRITE THIS INTO MY AST AND DOES IT MAKE SENSE ?

    It is agreed between the parties that the tenant or the landlord shall have the right to terminate this agreement after the expiry of six months of the term of this agreement by giving two months

    also

    If the tenant vacates prior to the full 12 months AST agreed or wishes to make any changes then there will be a fee charged for any changes of £50.00, another fee will be charged equivalent to one weeks rent for early termination, furthermore if the tenancy is ended early by the tenant a further charge equivalent to the rent lost will be made for unforseen void periods until the property is relet to a new tenant.
