has the lease been signed/
Thats helpful. To answer your specific question the lessee you not be free from all or any of the obligations by handing the lease back unless the landlord agreed to this arrangement in writing. Simply saying - I have enough - would allow the landlord to sue for any losses. However if there was an agreement that would of course be a different matter. Most leases state that the landlord must not unreasonably withhold consent and if they do they can be taken to tribunal for resolution. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.
They can if the lease is coming to an end or they are selling their interest in the property. They can not throw you out unless the lease is at an end or they consider you in breach (they would have to take court proceedings to prove same). If they are acting inappropriately then I would get a solicitor to write to them and tell them that they are in breach and potentially seek compensation. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.
