    The clause says AT 6 months, not any time AFTER 6 months. While I respect your barrister friends opinion, he works in criminal law not civil, which probably means he doesn't encounter tenancy agreements in his normal working day.

This means that by signing the agreement you are undertaking to pay rent for the full period. You cannot give notice to quit during this period and if you leave the property without the Landlord's consent and before the end of the fixed term, you are still liable for all the rent due until the end of the tenancy"

      The notice period is one month.

      My work colleague told me that that meant I could move any time after 6 months - this is a standard wording for AST with break clause.

      However on the front it says "option to break at 6 months". Does this then override what my work colleague said?

      No, that clause merely refers to a break-clause's existence. Is there an explicit break clause? What does it say, precisely?

        These 'notes' may not necessarily form part of the contract.

        The notice period is one month.

        As Jeffrey says, you need to tell us the exact wording of the actual break clause in the contract - not what it says in the notes or on the cover page of the contract.

        It would a lot less confusing if you stuck to one user name.
