A tenant ran into financial trouble so we offered to relet the flat by readvertising and doing viewings to release her from the fixed term which would have finished in January.

After a month or so and many viewings it didnt happen soon enough for her so she sent an email saying she was leaving the next day and sent us the keys back a few weeks later so we could continue doing viewings. I did explain in several emails the rent would have to be paid until a new tenant was found and then she could be released from her contract. She has got advice from a young persons organisation i have never heard of saying we had agreed to let her go because we accepted the keys and sent her a leavers sheet to complete which asks for the alarm code, details about the flats utilities and her new address. How can they make this allegation?.In trying to release her from the contract by re-advertising we have out ourselves in a difficult position.Are we supposed to sit back and do nothing until the tenancy ended?.
