Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you signed it yet? Does it say it is rent up front for 12 months?
Ok - but do you want to move out?Did you get a booklet called ' How to rent ' ?
When did you sign this contract? Is your deposit protected?
What does it say about termination?
Does it say on the top its an Assured Shorthold Tenancy?
Ok. I dont think you can break the agreement, You signed for 12 months, however if it does not specify the length then an AST has to be 6 months.
So I think you are bound for 6 months. However if you leave early the Landlord can re-let the property.
You would only be responsible for the EMPTY period.
But given the agreement is defective, does not mean it is void all together, it is still binding, but only for 6 months.
But if someone else moves in then you are only liable for that period where nobody was there.
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Technically yes, but the Landlord needs to market it. The Landlord cant just take no action
Does that clarify?
Ok - then you would only be liable for the period it is empty
