the point is. At the end of the second month I gave notice (1 month before the end of the contract, which would be fine). I except that in the worst case I pay the whole of the three months.
If the landlord doesn't give me my deposit back the overall cost is 3months+20 days. And it quite odd that I pay more to stay in the property less time.
sorry can you read my "hystory" again? You may have missed some steps
yes of course
the AST started the 24th of november. I gave notice the 23th of january (and I left the 15th of february, but this shouldn't be relevant)
The issue wasn't about the notice (which I forgot to say, was one month).
But about the fact that for the last month (the contract ends the 24th of february) I paid only 400 instead of 550 (he told me to do that). At least this is the only fact that he can rely on to demonstrate that I was responsable for the "breach" of the contract.
