I gave my landlord a month and a half`s notice until May 2020. The result is the fact that my daughter stopped classes as a student and I could no longer afford to pay the rent as a freelancer due to Covid 19. I had to close my guest house, my source of income. Now the agent and landlord want me to pay a cancellation fee and June rent. Is it fair for the owner to charge me so much? Contact the nearest citizen advice service before deciding to leave your rental prematurely. They can inform you of your notification options in the right way so you can avoid problems when looking for a new home. Breaking your lease is one of the many reasons why you might lose your deposit. Even if your landlord decides not to sue you, they can seize your deposit, usually in its entirety. If your contract states that you can terminate your fixed-term rental prematurely, it means that you have an “interruption clause”.
