We want out of contract but where do we stand?

Thank you again.
One of my considerations is how much of my time I want to give to it & how much peace of mind I am willing to lose.
I got my tenant to retract his end of tenancy, preferring to be honest.
I asked when I could end the contract with the letting agent.
I got a sarcastic email about my varying wishes & told I couldn't get out of the contract.
They have offered to drop from 8% to 4% as the tenant has been in place for 5 years.
Knowing myself I have to be careful not to 'get into it' only to lose the battle & waste a tonne of my time/energy so we accepted.
Looking at my part, I didn't understand the contract, I didn't watch the bills not arrive & I am apathetic.
In future I will need to be more attentive to my part.
I want to sell it & put the money towards a family home, husband & I are both self employed & I can't even begin to imagine the stress, fees & nonsense that whole rigmarole will bring about.
Buy a home, live in it, die seems to be the most peaceful way to final this.
Thank you all.

Yes, I read up last night & see all that you say.
I agree we should have noticed & have owned that but am getting nothing but aggressive, nonchalant replies.
The tenant saying he's leaving was a misunderstanding & I wish he hadn't.
I'll check the statement, pay them & hopefully they'll want rid of me as much as I do from them.
I shan't antagonise them because as usual I see that I am small fry & need to pick my battles & these guys aren't bound by owning anything, much less do they understand the concept of humility.
Thank you. I'm clear & appreciate your expertise.
