Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How long are you tied in for? Wont the Landlord release you now if you cant afford it?Did you sign as company or individual?
This ends in 2 months anyway, doesnt it? Commenced Jan 15
I dont know why I had thought it was a 2 year lease, not sure why.
However I have looked at what the lease says and I can't see how you can get out of this.
The break clause was not activated and you are tied in. If you had signed as a Ltd company then you would not have been personally liable, but I am sorry to say that as you signed it in person you are.
Therefore the only way of getting out is by negotiation with the Landlord.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You could say that but the Landlord may just say, well you should have read it.
Just be up front, you can't afford it, the business will go under and he/she wont get anything.
Better to have someone in who can pay the rent rather than a tenant who cant.
Does that clarify?
Im sorry its not better news.
