The context associated with my question associated with interpreting the phrase “within 3 months of the said expiry” is as follows: The Lease reads "The Landlord hereby grants to the Tenant the option to purchase the rented premises upon expiry of the term, notice of exercising the said option to be given to the Landlord in writing within 3 months of the said expiry".
It was assumed by the Landlord that it would mean that notice be given by the Tenant 3 months prior to expiry of the lease rather than 3 months after expiry. What are you thoughts?
ps. This is relating to a commercial lease in the UK (region is NI)
