Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I am not quite with you. He agreed to release you early?Was it conditional upon anything?
Thanks. The text is clear 'as long as I can get another tenant in'.
A such if the new tenant does not move in, sadly you are liable.
If the Landlord had said yes you can leave early, it would be ok.
But its conditional. That condition is getting another tenant.
As such based on what texts you have said, sadly I think you are liable.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If this answers your question could I invite you rate my answer 3, 4 or 5 stars before you leave today.
I am only paid for my work on this question if you rate my answer, using the star system at the bottom of the screen. Please do not forget as it is an important part of the online process! Thank you.
No. He cant claim twice.
Does that clarify?
All the best
