1. Is property in England/Wales? Law is different elsewhere.
2. Usual answer is "no"- unless Tenancy Agreement gives you that right (unlikely).
3. You signed-up as T for six months. You would be rightly annoyed if L tried wrongly to turn you out before then. Why should L have to let you out early, then?
4. However, you could always ask L to accept an early surrender. If he feels well-disposed towards you, and if he thinks that he could find a new - willing - T to replace you, he might agree.
5. Of course, you can literally move out whenever you want. The problem is that rent would continue to run for full six months, and you would have to pay it in full, unless the tenancy is surrendered early by agreement.

Hi Polo,
Does this mean you have found a landlord happy to let you keep your dog?
Hopefully, for you, this is the case, no more fretting for you then.

Yes- you don't have to remain there but the rent will run on to term end (unless L lets you off early).

I've noticed that happen with one or two people who post on forums. They're not doing it deliberately.
