    Dear Mr Ali Orman and Ms Florian Nita,

    Further to your recent enquiry regarding vacating early, technically speaking you have signed a legally binding fixed term contract and must comply with your obligations, including the payment of rent until it expires after 18th April 2020.

    If you wish to vacate early your Landlord is unlikely to object provided you can introduce another Tenant to take your place. In which case, you would only be liable to your contracted obligations until the new Tenant moves in.

    Winnard & Brown could advertise your property to introduce a new Tenant in the same way that we advertise for Landlords, only in this case, we would be acting for you. We normally charge Landlords one month’s rent plus vat to introduce a Tenant only. In your case I propose to discount our fees to £200 plus vat (£240 inclusive)

    After a new Tenant is introduced references will need to be taken at cost.

    A new Tenancy Agreement will have to be drawn up and prescribed legal information must be served.

    This would normally cost the Landlord £80 plus vat. It is usual practice for Tenants to pay the Landlords legal cost when they are in breach of contract.

    We will discount this to £50 inclusive of VAT.

    We can act on a no tenant, no fee basis with no upfront fees if you agree that the above £290 costs. Fees can be deducted from your deposit when your Tenancy is ended.

    Please reply to this email if you want Winnard & Brown to re-advertise your property and confirm that fees can be deducted from your deposit.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries whatsoever

    Kind regards,

    Darren Winnard

    I am leaving my minimum term contract of 6 months early by 1-month. My landlord is suggesting I pay 50% of that last month’s rent. is this a reasonable amount. If not what can I do to change this.
