    Hey,

    So I moved out recently, as I'll be going to university in London in Sept, or I'll be working there. But I signed up to a tenancy contract for 12 months that is frankly too high, given a family problem that has just occurred.

    I looked everywhere online and the only company which offers to help me get out is [deleted, user has already provided me with a review of the site, and don't want to get banned for advertising] , but I wonder if there are better alternatives?

    My landlord refuses to help me exit the tenancy!

    That site looks like rubbish. You cna get another tenant to take your place with LL's consent. You need to read your agreement tbh.

    Alright cheers

    Does the landlord have an obligation to release me from the contract?

    What does your tenancy agreement say about break clause?

    No, but if the other person will take over the spot, you may have to pay an extra months rent but it should be okay?

    No.
    He isnt even under an obligation to permit you to replace yourself, but its important to read the tenancy.

    Says I have to keep on paying rent due under the lease

    That's not a break clause..

    Does your agreement have one? What does it say about giving notice?

    I'm scanning it right now, I see no break clause.

    It literally says I agree to pay the stated rent for the duration of the contract. Nothing specified.

    It will be under the heading termination.
    As you are a student iits highly unlikely there will be a break clause that can be exercised by the tenant by serving notice.
    If I was the LL I would wnat the money for all year to aboid situations like now and losing money.

    And the solution is?

    I'll probably advertise on student pages, or gumtree or something and try to find someone.
