Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I do not quite understand, could you please explain your situation a little more?
Is it an assured shorthold tenancy you have?
Do you rent a room? Does the Landlord live in?
Ordinarily you would be liable for the 3 month period because that is what the agreement says.
You agreed to the contract and are bound by it.
You could argue the terms are unfair as per the Consumer Rights Act 2015 which states:
62Requirement for contract terms and notices to be fair
(1)An unfair term of a consumer contract is not binding on the consumer.
(2)An unfair consumer notice is not binding on the consumer.
(3)This does not prevent the consumer from relying on the term or notice if the consumer chooses to do so.
(4)A term is unfair if, contrary to the requirement of good faith, it causes a significant imbalance in the parties’ rights and obligations under the contract to the detriment of the consumer.
But that is your only argument. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
All the best.
