Welcome to Just Answer.
I am currently reviewing your question and i will return to you shortly.
Thanks for your patience, i assume you are still within the 12 months period when you terminated the tenancy agreement. If so the landlord is permitted to recover the rent you agreed to pay until the he finds a new tenant or the end of the 12 months period. However there are other ways you can try to persuade the landlord to release you from paying rent up until he finds a new tenant.
Do you understand what i have stated if yes i will proceed to the next step?
Please ignore the automated call request unless you wish to discuss the matter
The ways you can persuade the landlord are noted below:
With regards to the marketing fee charged the landlord is permitted to charge a fee for an early termination but this fee must be something he would have paid due to your early termination. Therefore you may wish to ask him to provide proof that he would incurred the fee he has charged and whether this is something he would have done in any event when the tenancy ended after 12 months.
Do you understand what i have stated if not please let me know?
A benefit is it gives the landlord time to start looking for your replacement which you would hope he was actively undertaking. Further it gives you time to ensure you get the property cleaned and also you move all your belongings from the property.
I hope i have clarified the position if not please let me know.
