Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease.

If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
