Ending the rental contract earlier- is it possible?

Hello!

I moved to Ticino at the beginning of the year and rented an apartment from property management company. At first I had a contract for 6 months and after 4 months I asked for extension for another 6 months. They increased the rent and wrote to the contract, that if I want to finish the contract earlier than December, I still have to pay the rent until the end of the year. Unfortunately due to health reasons I have to return home in the end of September. Does somebody know, if there are Swiss laws that tell, that you can finish the contract with 3months notice and without paying until the end of the year?

Thanks!

No, you can find someone to step into the contract though, otherwise you need to pay until the end of the year

.......and complementing @roegner answer, if you are lucky enough to find someone to take your contract over, his/her contract also finishes in December.

This sounds a bit dodgy to me. Is it?

Short term contract in Ticino, I can believe the summer months are more expensive than winter, certainly true in Malta & many other sunny destinations.
