    1. Is property in England/Wales? Law is different elsewhere.
    2. Usual answer is "no"- unless Tenancy Agreement gives you that right (unlikely).
    3. You signed-up as T for six months. You would be rightly annoyed if L tried wrongly to turn you out before then. Why should L have to let you out early, then?
    4. However, you could always ask L to accept an early surrender. If he feels well-disposed towards you, and if he thinks that he could find a new - willing - T to replace you, he might agree.
    5. Of course, you can literally move out whenever you want. The problem is that rent would continue to run for full six months, and you would have to pay it in full, unless the tenancy is surrendered early by agreement.

        Dog friendly landlord?

        Hi Polo,
        Does this mean you have found a landlord happy to let you keep your dog?
        Hopefully, for you, this is the case, no more fretting for you then.

            Yes- you don't have to remain there but the rent will run on to term end (unless L lets you off early).

              I've noticed that happen with one or two people who post on forums. They're not doing it deliberately.

                'The Tenant' (all 3), can vacate at end of fixed term with no Notice. If remainers sign a new AST to commence after fixed termpref naming new joint, this sould replace original AST. Deed of Surrender is 'belt & brace'.

                chrisco
                Hi All, I have approached the freeholder on an informal basis to extend the lease of a flat I own as a rental. He has come up with reasonable price for the premium to extend to 125 years from now but wants to double the ground rent every 25 years (from £80 to £160 p/a initially). My solicitor has...

                I think the problem may be that they are not really 'moving out'. There is a long thread elsewhere on the forum that may be of interest. Although unresolved, it suggests that if some of them don't move out then an SPT will arise automatically for all of them. I really don't want to restart that discussion...

                The Leasehold Advisory Service has an online lease extension calculator that should give you a rough idea of the cost.

                I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

                I have experienced far more dificult cases than that from my neighbour's tenants with my front window and my flat door window cracked.

                Make an offer she cannot refuse. Carrots work better.

                Local Authorities are slow moving because shortage of housing is a problem.

                Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

                Since the Yale was broken it proves the tenants took responsible measures for the security: they locked the door.
                The yale is necessary for security. It is sufficient and safe to use in case of a fire because you could get out quickly operating the lock with the thump ie you don't want to be looking...
