Hi there, Desperately looking for some advice.
Currently 3 months into a 6 month fixed term tenancy,
I was offered a job in my home town which would mean leaving the tenancy early, this was discussed with my partner at the time as we have a joint tenancy agreement. We agreed the best course of action was to contact the estate agency/ landlord and see if we could get agreement from the landlord to end the tenancy early.
Shortly after this discussion, whilst in work I recieved a text from my partner to say that he had left me and had moved out of the property all whilst I was in work, I asked him if he had sorted things out with the landlord and he said yes. I am still looking to move out of the property myself within the month and whilst the landlord has agreed, it looks as though we are still liable to pay rent until the end of the fixed term as my ex partner did not get this in writing.
Financially I am unable to pay the full rent on my own and I hope that he will agree to pay half with me until the end of the term, however due to his flaky nature I dont believe he will be forthcoming in paying half of the rent even though he is also liable. I have no address for him and his phone number appears to have been cut off.
I am really going to struggle to pay this rent on my own and am unsure what I can do to ensure that he also takes responsibility for the payments.
This has been such a distressing experience and any advice would be greatly appreciated, Im deperate.
Thank you 🙂
