I have an AST signed by a tenant with a due commencement date of 3rd September 2016. They have paid no monies as yet.
Because of a dispute with her mother, our tenant now no longer wishes to take up the tenancy even though she signed the agreement in August.
Can we legally charge her for the loss of rent whilst we find another tenant?
She has been advised apparently that as she has not moved in and has told us she no longer wants the property prior to the commencement date of the AST that she has no obligation to pay any loss of rent.
What is the correct position please?
