Re: Finding and signing for one place, but then finding a better?

This is one of those times you want to be nice to the landlord. They can be as helpful or ****y as they want to be.

They can certainly obligate you to stick to the word of the contract - respecting the notice period and dates or submitting your own suitable new tenants. (I wonder if they could also charge end of contract cleaning/servicing fees, though that yould be particularly ****y).

On the other hand, they might just ask the next interested party and let you move on with a smaller charge (just to cover any loss they've incurred and the cost of drawing up the contract) once the new tenants have signed.
