My tenant gave a one month notice of leaving halfway through a one-year AST contract Standard RLA contract). For personal reasons at that time clause 9 of section B was overlooked and the tenant vacated the property and gave one set of keys back (he paid for another set to be duplicated.
This may we have terminated the transaction, although there has been there may still be a dispute on the deposit due to a flea infestation in the property.
I am just wondering whether I can still make a claim for rent and agency expenses under clause 9B or probably the fact that I have not mentioned it at the time to the DPS and I have accepted the return of the keys and a vacated property means that I have lost any right to that claim, as it also seems that claims on the deposit cannot be updated even before the money has been adjudicated.
