A tenant sign the AST on 18th September and promptly reported that a back board to a cupboard was damp. Further investigation revealed damp being all kitchen cabinets and the landlord wuthorised for the units to be removed and a DPC to be carried out. The work was started 10 days ago and will be complete today.

The tenant paid 1 month rent on check in and then paid a second month rent on 18th October without being asked. The tenant has been staying with a relative and hasn't moved her belongings in as yet and the landlord has confirmed that he will not charge rent until works are complete.

We have received an email from a local solicitors informing us that the tenant wants to terminate the tenancy and wants the 2 months rent back. The solicitor seems to be under the impression that no works have commenced.

Please could you advise as to what our obligations are as well as the tenant's.

Many thanks
