If a tenant wants to vacate the flat 2 months before lock-in is over, but willing to forfeit entire deposit amount then will he face legal consequences? Will it be crminal in nature? My agreement clause reads that they can serve 30 day notice only after end of lock-in period. So I will get 3 month rent.
The deposit amount is 2.75 times the monthly rent amount. He is saying he will forfeit whole amount but vacate now


Also, the contract clearly states that deposit cannot be considered as monthly rent at any time. Further, it reads:

In case the LICENSEES vacates the premises before the completion of such mandatory Lock-In Period, the LICENSEES shall pay compensation to the LICENSORS for the balance lock in period plus one month notice period and In the same way if the Licensors asks LICENSEES to vacate the premises before the Mandatory Lock in period the Licensors shall pay the compensation to the LICENSEES. Further, only after the expiry of the Mandatory Lock-In Period the LICENSEES may serve a 30-day notice in writing to the LICENSORS stating that he/she wishes to terminate the agreement

    Can I as owner slap legal charge for breaking the contract?

    What does your contract say on tenant vacating of flat before lock-in is over?

      What I can understand is that the contract is not clear on what happens if the tenant breaks the lock-in term.

      What is your issue if the tenant is vacating 2 months before lock-in is over and paying you 2.75 months rent.
