How many months rent should I claim for rent in arears from my tenant?
I have a small claims court case on 29th June 2007.
Please could you advice me how many days rent I should claim from my tenant who left without paying?
As well as 2 months rent outstanding from previous rents the tenant did not pay for the month of May. I received a letter on the 13th May 2007 (postage date was 11th May on the envelope) with no warning she was leaving. My contract asks for 1 months notice from the tenant. She says in the letter received (also containing the door keys) that she vacated on the 28th April 2007, though we know this to be false with witnesses seeing that she was present at the property up to 8th May 2007.
I presume that she owes me 4 months rent in total to include 3 months rent unpaid and 1 month for not giving any notice? Is this correct?
