Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. Has any reason been given for non payment please? Alex
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. In that case you can terminate only if its a fundamental breach of contract. If it is you can end it without notice BUT you need to act quick, because the longer you leave it from beach until moving the harder it is to claim fundamental breach because a Court may consider you have accepted it.As such you can move out but it needs to be asap and claim a refund of the deposit.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
