Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
Can you provide me a bit more information? On what basis does the landlord want to terminate your contract early? Did your sub-lessor have the right to sub-lease the property to you? Thanks.
Hi there. I responded to your question by asking for a bit of additional information. But, I see that you have opened up a new question indicating you've received no response. And, when I attempted to open that question, I see that another expert grabbed it. Therefore, I am going to opt out so that expert can provide you the information you seek. Please do not respond to this post as it will only slow the process of such an expert picking up your question. Take care.
Different contributor here. Please permit me to assist.
If you have a lease with a fixed term, you can simply refuse to leave. If the landlord locks you out, then you can sue for damages, which would include lost profits, and the cost of recovering the premises in court.
You can also offer to terminate early in exchange for a settlement payment in whatever amount you and the landlord is willing to agree upon.
That pretty much covers the issue.
I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.
Thanks again for using Justanswer!
