Late payment of rent
My tenant has 1 month left on a fixed term AST and has said he will leaving the flat as he is returning to his country of birth. He has told me he will be using the Security Deposit as the final months rent payment. He is fully aware this is in breach of the AST agreement but doesnt care as "there is nothing you can do about it" ! I have a tenant signed section 21 notice but I suspect in this situation it serves no purpose at all! I also suspect he has no intention of paying any outstanding utility bills / council tax even if he does hang around for the formal Check-Out. Would very much appreciate your advise on what options I am left with other that a 'Prayer and a paint brush' !
