I'm going to be leaving the property I have let in July and there is a dispute between myself and the landlord regarding this. There is no stipulation in the contract RE leaving the tenancy early other than "s192 of the law of property act" (reasonable time etc). I have given him two months notice (actually more than that verbally) and he has 'bargained' with me that if he finds new tenants he will 'let' me leave. However...
The landlord has broken the law several times, most recently installing a new fuse box for the house by himself; needless to say it went wrong, and he asked me to take a look at it to diagnose the problem! I was then informed by the electrician who came to sort out the mess he had made, that this was VERY illegal. As I said, this is only one of a number of things he has done.
My question is, regardless of what the contract says, if the landlord has committed an act which is highly dangerous & illegal, is this clause for getting out of the contract early?
