Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much are they seeking to claim please?
Have they been actively marketing it?
Ok - what is it you would like to know about this please?
Well if you do not then the Landlord can issue proceedings against you.
Technically you are liable for the rent until the term expires or there are new tenants.
However the Landlord also needs to mitigate their loss by making reasonable efforts to market it.
I cant see how they can want to charge more rent, because they are profiting for you moving out.
So if you refuse to pay, all they can do is issue a claim. You can defend on the basis the Landlord has clearly failed to mitigate their loss and take reasonable steps.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
correct. Failed to mitigate in short.
Does that clairfy?
