I have a joint tenancy agreement with 4 other people. I have left the property and am looking to end the contract, I have researched and found that I can possibly put a notice to quit. I have a 12 month contract with a 6 month break clause. The break clause comes in on March 14th. The other 4 tenants have obstructed me from subletting so my option now is to end the tenancy but I was enquiring as to whether I can do this without their permission?

That depends on the wording of the agreement and the clause - can you give them for me?

Okassuming that it is indeed the same yes you can give Notice yourself that is binding on the others - but if they do not move out then you are equally liable for ehe costs of the default - which could be large!Clare
