Hi, I have an ununsual situation, I have a 12 month tenancy agreement finishing soon, but I have since bought a property and have moved out and vacated the flat. We spoke to our agency and explained the situation and there was the possibility to move out early and get some money back, but due to incompetence on their part and a lack of communication with the landlord it has not been possible. We accept that, despite our frustrations with the way they handled it and understand we are liable for the duration of the contract.
The agency know that the property is now empty and have started showing it entering the property without our permission, we are still the legal tenants and have at no point given them permission to come and go as they please, I understand this action is illegal, but what rights do I have in terms of terminating the contract early as they are in breach of the terms, and claiming compensation. To make matters worse not only are they entering the property they are leaving lights on.
