Can I Leave A Shorthold Tenancy Agreement Early

I am in a 6-month lease and I am 20 weeks pregnant. I have to resign 2 months in advance to leave. I have to find a bigger apartment before the baby is born, because I live in a studio. I notify the landlord in advance to ask if he can end the rental after 5 months instead of 6 months. Has anyone ever been in my situation or can they give me advice on how to approach the owner? Do I have to tell you now that I am in my first month of lease, or do you advise to wait and terminate 3 months before the end of the lease? I am afraid that they will take my deposit or push me to continue paying the rent until the end of the lease. I can`t afford to lose money because I need as much money as for the new apartment which is going to cost more. You can only terminate a temporary lease agreement if you have an interruption clause or if you can reach an agreement with your landlord. If you do not reach an agreement, your landlord will have the right to ask you to pay the rent until the end of the lease. Any remission agreement must be in writing so that your landlord cannot sue you for rent.

They have either a “temporary lease” that ends on a given date, or a “periodic lease”, which continues for example monthly or weekly. A periodic lease is also called a “rolling lease”. I`m not a lawyer and it`s just an opinion. 1) Since there was a lease and they are now in the property, I don`t think they can be classified as squatters, so they can`t just be removed by the police. 2) They were very courteous to remove them from their lease. What was the wording? Did he somehow say that they had to give up the property? I see that probably won`t be the case, since you seem to have the impression that they were not there. If he mentioned the property by chance and they did not abandon it, I would say that the lease still exists and they have to pay rent. I doubt you want to hear that. Ultimately, you must take legal action for detention if necessary..
