I think maybe it was if it was extended beyond two years; If so, it may be a cynical attempt by the agent to circumvent the finding (they establish a new contract and the two years start again). You can usually terminate a periodic rental agreement by giving your landlord 1 month`s notice. If your fixed term ends on March 1, you can usually move on the last day of the lease without notice, as described in the initial contribution here. Be sure to clean the property and leave it in the same condition as when moving in. You must do this to collect your acomptt at the end of your rental.. . .
