I would be happy to assist.
Please can you let me have further details so that I can help you out.
Please let me know more about the agreement between you and the landlord and the issue with terminating the agreement.
I have to go into a meeting. I will respond as soon as my meeting is finished.
On the basis of the clauses you have provided you are contractually tied to the contract and can only terminate it as per the terms of clause 5.5.
The only option you have if you want to leave early is to advertise for a new tenant and introduce the new tenant to the landlord. If the landlord accepts the new tenant then your tenancy can be surrendered and a new one granted to the new tenant. Do note that the landlord does not have to agree.
I am afraid that you are tied to the contract. If you leave otherwise than in accordance with the terms of the tenancy you could be sued by the landlord for the rent due till the end of the tenancy. Although the landlord is under a duty to mitigate any loss.
I think trying to find a new tenant may be the only way forward, unless the landlord will accept a surrender which is unlikely.
I hope this is helpful.
I have seen this done before. TheRe is nothing preventing the landlord from doing this.
The clause says notice must be served on the rent due date of month 10. You could serve earlier but start that it is to take effect from the rent due date in month 10, just work out the dated put that in rather than the rent due date etc. Therefore you could serve now and to take effect from the relevant date.
Serve notice by recorded delivery and follow it up by standard post or hand delivery.
I hope I have been of use.
Please take a moment to accept / rate.
