Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.

I am sorry to hear about your illness. I hope you are doing better. How did you breach the contract according to the landlord if you were never late on the mortgage?
