Friend of mine has lost her job and will have to leave Hong Kong ASAP. She has the usual 14 months minimum rental clause for her apartment, but she's only been in there for 6 months and must leave immediately.
She will of course let her landlord know soon, this landlord is said to be a nice person, but since "you never know" : worst case scenario, if landlord is p.....ed off and requires full payment of the remaining 8 months, she's determined to leave Hong Kong just like that and in doing so ready to forfeit the 2-month guarantee and disappear.
She does NOT intend to come back to HK afterwards and doesn't have any address in her home country yet, so there's no way the landlord can chase her on the short run.
1) What would be the odds that the landlord takes legal path to sue her on an international level, outside of Hong Kong ? ;
2) Could people from building's management (i.e. : security guard at the entrance) prevent movers' company to go fetch her boxes (i.e. : don't allow them to enter the building) in any way, if landlord asks to do so ? She will NOT be in a non-paid situation for she has just recently paid for an additional month and will just forfeit the 2-months guarantee.
Thanks in advance for your help !
