Hi,
 
I had been forced into a contract while i was staying in a serviced apartment in westbay before fifa; as fifa approached i was requested by the serviced apartment management to leave or to sign a 18month contract with a hiked rental agreement.
 
With no option; i signed and have recently completed 1 year and have decided to leave and signed a lease elsewhere in qatar.
 
The serviced apartment management team state that because im breaking the 18 month lease - i need to pay the 2 month penalty as per the signed agreement.
 
The management dont have any cheques from me, nor a security deposit nor my credit card on record.
 
The question i have if i just leave - what grounds to they have to chase for the funds? (of course there were many things that transpired me to move on)

Just let them sit with both their hands folded under their butts. If they go over to the police department, they will be advised to take the matter the court of law. That will cost them money and much time. I don't think they can do much except threaten you verbally.
