Can't believe I'm posting about this house again it's been a nightmare,

Basically we moved into our current house PR on a 6 Months contract completed that and have extended for another 12 months.

That was 6 months ago so technically we have 6 months left in tenancy, but the house has been one danger to another and we have now found another house much better for us!

I have emailed our estate agents to say will be handing in our notice and they have replied saying we are in a legal binding contract for another 6 months and have to stay.

But in our contract it says that after our 6 months agreement we can end our tenancy as soon as we give two months written notice ....

So I'm unsure what rights we have ? Are we stuck here ? I can post a picture of the clause if that will help ?

..... and the page with the contract term start date so we can have a look at that too.

Just under the headed mutual break clause is the paragraph

Are you posting the original 6 month contract? Or the most recent 12 month contract? Extensions don't always have the same terms.

You need to wait six months after an extension then you can give two month's notice.
It depends if the extension contract is worded as two 6-months extensions running subsequently or one 12-month extension. If it's the former, they're right. If it's the latter, you're right.
You need to take both contracts to CAB or a solicitor, and ask their advice.
