The law is that you cannot terminate a fixed term lease before the end of the term unless the tenant has breached the terms of the lease or the tenant agrees.

So you can certainly try and negotiate something with the tenant but otherwise, no matter how much difficulty this causes you there is no possibility of a court allowing you to evict this tenant.

I am sorry about that.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating even though I could not give you the answer you were hoping for but instead had to provide bad new but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
