The agency said there was a break clause in the contract (more that once when asked) and gave me the date (31st of August) after which I could move with two months notice. It is a greek agency and since I am Greek I trusted them and didi not read the contract in detail (stupidity of me!). Even some weeks ago when realised there was no break clause in the contact and asked them, they ensured me that we do have this agreement, although they had forgot to write it down ( other people were present as well).
When I sent them the notice that I would remove in two months time, they sent me an email, making clear that I have to pay until the contract expires since no break clause is written in it!!!
I am forty, consultant Neurologist, but still stupid and I hate the fact I have become a victim!!!
How can I lose less money of that cheat?
I have just found the holding deposit receipt. I paid the amount requiring 1 y contract with 6 months break clause. Do you think this is of any use?
And one last question before rating your answer. If I stop paying the rent from the very next month, what will be the consequences according to UK law?
