Unfair Landlord (in cancellation of the Apartment contrat)

Dear All,

I hope some of you could help advising me with my problem or maybe has the same experience like me.

So here is my case, i signed an apartment contract for 2 years but actually after i stayed there for 6 months, i have urgent and important reason to cancel the contract. The landlord said that they will allow me not to pay for the rest of the rent if i can find someone who will move in to my room.Finally i found a couple who will move in to my room and he already signed the contract with my landlord to move in to my room. Then i asked the landlord to fulfill the contract that they have to pay me back the deposit money and i am free of monthly apartment fee after there is some one moving in to my room.However, the land lord said that i didn't fulfill the cancellation agreement because i found a couple and not a single person who will occupy my room.Therefore, i still have to pay my room until i found other single person who will occupy my room. This is really violation against the agreement and i am sure that i am right in this case.

Could anyone advise how i can solve this problem?

Thank you very much and hope to hear from you all soon.

Re: Unfair Landlord (in cancellation of the Apartment contrat)

Does it actually state in your contract that the room is for a single person only?

Even if it does, seems to me that as the Landlord accepted and signed a contract with the couple you found to take it over, that you've fulfilled your part and are thus discharged from any further obligations to pay etc.

Yes, join and get advice from the Mieterverband, as has already been suggested, as soon as possible.
