Hello everyone,

I have a question: 6 month AST started on 28 Oct 2018. While in the last two month of tenancy, on 24 of April 2019, I issued S21 giving 2 months notice for the tenants to leave on the 26th of June 2019. This is because I am now marketing and trying to sell the property.

However, tenants now sent an email on 04 May 2019 saying they have spoken to estate agents who told them that they can leave earlier if they want to under a "Surrender of tenancy". So tenants want to leave on 24th of May 2019 - giving me effectively 20 days notice from today.

Just for clarity I use the standard RLA's tenancy and we are now outside of the 6 month tenancy so are on Rolling basis.

My question is can they do this i.e. leave earlier giving 20 days notice only?
