Who ever performs Umrah before the Months of Hajj is not a Mutamatti
Question:

If the Muslim arrives in Makkah before the months of Hajj with intention of performing Hajj, then he performs Umrah and remains (Makkah) until Hajj time and performs Hajj, is his Hajj considered a Tamattu' or an Ifrad?
Answer:

His Hajj is considered an Ifrad because At-Tamattu' is when a person assumes Ihram for Umrah during the months of Hajj, completes it, then assumes Ihram for Hajj the same year. However, if he combines them by assuming Ihram for both Hajj and Umrah together, then he is a Qarin (i.e., he stays in Ihram until slaughtering his animal on the 10th of Thul-Hijjah). At-Tamattu' is specifically for whoever assumes Ihram for Umrah during the months of Hajj, because when the months of Hajj begin, the Ihram for Hajj during that time is more particular than the Ihram for Umrah. Thus, Allah lightened the matter for his servants and allowed them-rather, he preferred for them- to make their Ihram for Umrah so that they could combine it with the Hajj. Thus, they could do what was forbidden for them in Ihram (i.e., by removing the Ihram after performing the Umrah).
