it was 12 months contract which ends this month but it does say i need to give them 6 months notice but if i stay in i need to pay 9000 advance rent and rate and i just do not have this cash and i am in debt with my credit cards if i just leave whats the worst that can happen
Thank you. The worst that can happen is that they willchase you for six months rent in lieu of notice.
They could ultimately (unlikley) apply to court to make you bankrupt
There are actually only entitled to either the six monthsrent or rent until they get a new tenant. They are under a duty to mitigatetheir loss and to try to get a new tenant can recoup those costs from you,although it is arguable as to whether they are recoverable or not because theywould have to pay those costs had you given six months notice in any event, whenyou vacated the property at the end of the term after the appropriate notice.

Youdidn't mention that. But no, it makes no difference. If they are both councilproperties that you rent, it just makes the problem worse.
