Yes, I've been paying rent monthly and on time.
The contract was for a 1 year fixed period from May 2013 to May 2014. The owner has given me a 1 month notice. I must move out at the end of August 2013.
The cancellation clause reads as follows:
Notice of cancellation of the lease will only be accepted with 1 month's written notice by either party, not before 1 May 2014. Any other means will not be accepted and both parties will remain bound to this agreement.
I hope this answers your question, but if you have any further questions, feel free to ask them before you rate. It will not cost you anything extra. If you are satisfied with the answer, kindly click on one of the five faces on the ratings page. I don't get anything for this answer unless you do.
The fact that the contract was signed by the agent and not the owner, can this render the contract invalid?
Thanks a lot!
