Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you spoke to the Landlord about having you removed?
In law you are jointly liable until the end of the tenancy. So unless the Landlord releases you then you are jointly liable for the last 4 months.
If he choses not to pay you are jointly liable but can sue if your ex doesnt pay.
You cant remove yourself from the contract unless the agreement says you can or the Landlord consents.
No, you wont incur a fee from the agents.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer. Thanks!
No. Does that clarifies?
Because the Landlord doesnt have to agree, unless the contract says.
Does that clarify?
You can start another contract, yes.
It wont make any difference if you are on a current property.
All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face at the bottom of the screen, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
