Exact penalty for breaking lease prematurely
I'm a UK national who will likely return there due to ill health which will mean leaving my apartment while still within the contract.
The contract is for 1 year and I'm 4 months into it.
My landlord said I'd have to pay 3 months as a penalty. There is apparently also the requirement to provide 3 month's notice. Does this mean in effect that if i left immediately, for arguments sake, that I'd have to pay the 3 months notice and the 3 month penalty, effectively 6 months?
Thanks in advance.
