Hello,

Is it possible at all to leave before the end of a fixed term contract (12 months)? Would you have to pay the rest of the rent until the end of the contract? Can the landlord refuse any type of agreemt e.g. another tenant to move in and paying rent for when the flat is vacanct in between? 

Many thanks for your help!

Yes, it is possible. 

Normally, the landlord would require you to find another tenant and pay a fine that’s a percentage of the remaining rent until the end of the contract. 

However, the landlord can also refuse any arrangement and insist on you paying rent until the end of the contract. Keep in mind that if you pay rent, the property remains in your occupancy and the landlord has no right to rent it to somebody else, or even come to visit without your permission.
