The contract ends on 6th October 2013.
I moved out on April 20th and have been duly paying rent since. I have just gone through the contract and there doesn't seem to be a break clause.
I pay half the rent... the existing tenant pays the other half, I was told by the estate agent that I have to pay rent as I signed the contract with the landlord. The landlord has not offered. He has said I legally have to pay him? Is this correct, especially now I do not have any access to the property?
I don't understand, so if the landlord knows I have been out of the property since april. and him and the estate agent have told me I can't get out of the contract and I have to pay.. Why didn't they tell me I could give notice?
Do I have to give written notice? I didn't think I can break the contract? Can he sue me if he doesn't find someone to fill the room?
So is he breaking the contract by not giving me a key?
