Leaving contract early

Hi so I’m hoping to get some help. I’m having to leave my contract early and have found a replacement tenant (for a shorter period of time). My landlord however is telling me that I am still liable for the rent after they leave, until the end of my contract. Surely if another person is replacing my contract, I am no longer in that contract.

Hi - it will be best to keep this to one thread! So I’ll reply to this below your other post.
