This was subsiquently unconfortable and so I gave a short notice and moved out


welcome to JA.

Can i clarify that you want to know whether the landlord can sue you for 1 month's rent based on a contractual agreement which you believe you didn't sign.

Further you wish to know whether he can pursue this claim on basis he does not have your current address.

These are the circumstances plus a bit more

Please can you confirm whether my assumption of your questions are correct because i dont want to answer something else which will probably waste your time.
