I've been a silent reader for several years now and this platform helped find useful information on many occasions.
Due to the fact that my situation is rather tricky, I wanted to create my own thread hoping that someone will be able to provide a good advice.
I'm currently in a fixed term tenancy which ends in two months time. This is a shared lease and my flatmate lost his job due to current pandemic situation.
Now I've decided to leave the country and head back home because taking a 40% salary cut and demotion is not an option for me and I have an outstanding job offer in my hometown. This means I won't be able to give proper notice of 5 weeks.
I'm perfectly aware of the fact, that my flatmate will be affected by this as we both signed the lease.
My questions are: can the LL step back from the lease because of me leaving or is my flatmate safe for at least 3 months time? Can I expect my LL to open a case with RTB because of technically 1 months rent (he will keep my part of the deposit) or is he covered by mortgage holidays anyway?
Thanks for your help.
