As a tenant, your main responsibility is to pay the rent until the end of the contract. We understand that sometimes circumstances can change unexpectedly so, should you need to break your tenancy early and your landlord agrees to re-market the property, your liability for the payment of rent and terms of the contract will end once a new tenant is found. However, you will still need to cover the landlord’s costs and fees for the remainder of the original contract, calculated on a pro-rata basis for the unexpired term of the tenancy.

All fees and charges shown are inclusive of VAT.
