The written lease contract will prevail. Assuming that the contract is validly executed.

Send the landlord a well drafted letter that explains that pursuant to the lease executed on ..., for the property located at ... Notice is hereby given that upon termination of the lease term, you plan to vacate the premises and terminate the lease.

The written lease, any written amendments, govern. If there is doubt, play it safe and use the earliest date as the deadline for giving notice. Include in the letter, because you must give written notice to terminate, a copy of the lease and a statement about the termination date.
