    Break Lease Agreement Question


    I am breaking my lease and have to move due to urgent and work related things.

    Apart from taking my deposit what else can the land lord do as per law? Is there a law for this?

    My contract doesnt explicitly say anything about it. But my fixed term ends in June and after that i was supposed to give a two month notice period.

    Landlord can sue you to collect the rent for the balance period of the contract. However if you are leaving Hong Kong, then it will be difficult for the Landlord to sue. Best is to talk to the landlord and explain the reason for leaving, and if possible find some one to take over your lease.
