It was updated after the coronavirus outbreak The professional term for leaving a temporary AST prematurely is «lease surrender,» but you can only do so in agreement with your landlord. If you cannot obtain your consent, you will remain responsible for the rent and all other invoices you have agreed to pay in the tenancy agreement. It is much easier to end a periodic AST than a short-term temporary and secure rent. However, you must inform your landlord with the correct message to end your periodic rent. If you have to rent and undress a property under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) contract before the end of your contract, this means that you want to terminate your lease while it is still valid. In this case, the delivery is not sufficient and the landlord may insist that you pay your full rent for the duration of the lease. If there was a minimum of six months and two months` notice and an interruption period that came into effect at 4 months, there would be a clear communication two months after the 4-month expiry, which would be correlated with the minimum duration of 6 months. You did not say whether it was a common or one-time lease. If a common tenancy agreement, then all common tenants must agree to end an early rent, including the exercise of a break clause. If you have to leave before your lease expires, your landlord or broker may charge an early termination fee. You cannot charge more than the rent you would have paid if you had stayed until the end of your rent.
