Breaking lease contract

Question

I have a signed a 9 year lease contract starting middle of July 2014. Tomorrow I will give my landlord notice that I will be moving out in the middle of July.

This means:
1) I will leave the apartment exactly 3 years after moving in
2) I will give notice 3 months before my lease contract has reached 3 years

In this case, will I have to pay the penalty of 1 months rent?
Is the penalty decided on the date you give notice or the date you actually move out and stop paying?

Thank you!

You will not have to pay the extra month's rent.

The penalty depends on the length of your rental period.

After 36 months rental period, no penalty but 3 months previous notice is required to depart.
Notice can be given at any time.

Good removal
