Tenants moving out before end of fixed term
The tenant of my property wishes to vacate before the end of 12 month agreed term. I am happy for this to happen. I believe they require to give one months written notice ending on the rent day? The rent is payable monthly on the 17th. I believe the last day should be the 17th July 2011 but if we are unable to find a new tenant in that period would they still be liable for rent until someone new moves in?
I am however unsure what legally i need to write in correspondance once I have received the written notice. Please could you advice the procedure i should follow. The deposit is held with DPS.
