Ask the court for the owner or agent to fix the offence (for example. B repairs you have requested) or that it ceases to violate the contract (for example. B it ceases to harm their privacy). Stop paying rent on the day of your eviction. Note that there are financial consequences for the breach of the agreement – see below. It would be quite unusual for a landlord to simply accept a tenant who terminates a 6-month contract after a few days. However, you said that the owner agreed that your partner had moved. If he has agreed to the end of the lease, your partner may have been exempted from his obligation to pay the rent for the full term. It does not seem that this is what the landlord thinks happened if he now follows the rent. If the landlord has not released your partner from his obligation by accepting the rent rebate, your partner is responsible for paying the rent for the entire rent of 6 months. Looks like the landlord is willing to help by trying to find a new tenant, then frees your partner from any subsequent liability.
Many landlords, including me, will try to help tenants who want to go, but there is no obligation to do so, and few will accept that they are out of their pocket because they have a rent gap. I`m glad for you to have managed to clarify your relationship, but changing your partner`s plan is not the owner`s problem, and there`s really no reason for him not to sue your partner to rent if he doesn`t get income from the property. If you wish to terminate your contract prematurely without any of the reasons mentioned by law, you must keep in mind that in order to terminate a periodic lease, you must comply with the terms of the contract for the extent of the termination to be granted. If you think you want to leave your property because you are planning to move to another employer in a new location or are planning to buy your own home, but you are not sure when you can close your purchase, then converting your AST fixed term into a periodic lease may be a good option. You may not have to do anything to achieve this, since your fixed-term lease can automatically be converted to a short-term rent periodically, if: Hello. Our AST expires next week and we want to enter a rolling period where we pay in monthly installments (not the 6 months down payment we have made in the last two years).
