    Licence Agreement - Termination Notice Required

    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum and have a query regarding the Notice Terms on a Licence Agreement. Sorry for the long post, it's just that I'm in a bit of a tricky situation and would really appreciate any advice or thoughts.

    I am the Licensor and have an agreement with a company regarding a residential property. The license states the Initial License Period is until a date (less than three months from now). We have not received any notice yet and have a feeling the Licensee is just going to leave on the last day of the Initial License Period. My query is that what is the legal obligation of Notice from the Licencee?

    The agreement states about the License Period:

    "The duration of the Licence shall be for the Inital License Period, unless terminated earlier in accordance with the provisions of Clause A and if the Licence has not been terminated by the expiry of the Initial Licence Period the Licence shall continue until terminated in accordance with the provisions of Clause B".

    Clause A states:
    "During the Inital Licence Period this Licence may be terminated by either party on at least six months written notice given to the other party". (there are other parts to this clause but is not relevant here as it relates to a breach of the Licence by the Licencee, which has not occured).


    Clause B states:
    "After the expiry of the Initial Licence Period this Licence may be terminated by either party on at least three months' notice given to the other party". (there are other parts, that aren't relevant here as for Clause A).


    Thanks in advance for any help or thoughts

    During the period up to the date the Initial License Period expires either party must give six months' notice to end the licence. After the Initial License Period expires three months' notice is needed.

      Thanks for the reply. That's just what I thought but thank you for clarifying too.... so the Licence can't just end without any notice at all, it's got to be either 3 or 6 months.

        On the basis of what you have posted, correct.

          Thanks..the Licencee has now said they are planning on leaving on the last day of the Initial Licence Period even though this is less than 3 months time and have given no kind of notice at all as of yet. This is surely not adhering to the Licence then so what steps could I take now?

            At the moment nothing really because they have not yet left. You can of course point out the terms of the licence and ask them why they consider they should not apply.
