I have been told that I am not allowed to cancel the lease and will be held liable to pay each months rent in full until the end of November (when the lease expires). I am a little confused as to how this works, could you please explain it to me? I have attached a screenshot of the lease.

Does this mean that I am held liable to pay until November even if I give 20 days notice?

Thanks in advance!
