Unfortunately, the agent is correct. Typically, leases do not provide a cancellation clause and, if the tenant breaches, they will be held liable for the full amount of the lease. The only way to be sure this is the case is to review the lease to see if there is a cancellation clause in it providing a penalty for early termination. However, landlords rarely include such a clause in the lease.
