    Break tenancy due to current circumstances around the Coronavirus?

    Let have a look at this case:

    An individual is renting a flat under an "assured short term tenancy". The agreement has a break clause, exercisable earliest on 28 July 2020.

    Given the current circumstances (around the coronavirus), is there a possibility for the individual to get out of the tenancy earlier than 28 July 2020?

    Thanks

    No, unless the law changes.
    And it would be an odd piece of legislation to allow more movement in a period of lockdown.

    Unless there is anything in the tenancy about acts of god or force majeure.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      Yes. Mutually agreed surrender.
