I am suing tenants who have now left one of my properties for failing to pay the last two months rent (August and September). I served them with a S21 notice in mid-July which expired at the end of September which also marked the end of the six-month tenancy.

However I had no idea that they were actually going to leave until I got a text from one of them on the 1st October to say they had moved out and left the keys in the house ! Although it was me who gave them notice, they ignored any contact I tried to make with them during the last two months and was even anticipating having to evict them via a court order.

I have therefore heard that I am also entitled to sue them an extra months rent for failing to give me one months notice as this meant I was unable to market the property. What are my chances of getting a successful judgement from the courts for this extra month ? Am I also entitled to sue for affiliated damages such as water charges, etc ?
