many thanks. The landlord is saying that her home insurance states that the property needs to be occupied and that I cannot move out of the property. This is even I agree to pay the rent as property will be unoccupied which breaches her insurance policy. My questions are
1. If i move out of the property and agree to pay rent until the new tenant moves in, what action can she take against me? Can she take me to the court?
2. Is she required to make an attempt to find a tenant after I move?
3.Do i need to pay the rent for the remaining period on a monthly basis or in a single payment?
