I am not from the UK originally so any piece of advice would be highly appreciated.
I am currently a tenant in Oxford. I am renting a 1bd flat for about 900 pounds (4months of 12-month contract). Recently, because of work-related duties, I was faced with a relocation and I asked the landlord to terminate the contract via agent. She has agreed, and according to my contract I need to pay the rent until a new tenant is found. And now the landlord decided to ask for 975. The agent has been struggling with finding anybody interested (the price is too high) and I suspect that it is done with premeditation at my cost. Obviously the price is too high and they are rejecting any of suggestions of going down.
What can I do in this situation? Are there any legal ways of forcing them to lower the price (court?)?
