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.
As above.. all depends how awkward the agency wants to be. Remember that in the case of an unsigned contract some agencies try to charge... that is illegal
