Hi,

I have a tenant who is 3 months into a 6 month AST.

30/1/09 Tenancy started and bond plus 1 month’s rent paid OK
30/2/09 2nd month rent due and paid OK
30/3/09 3rd month rent due and paid OK
30/4/09 4th month rent due NOT PAID
06/5/09 Letter put through door returning keys

My tenant has now put the keys through the letterbox with a note saying that due to unforeseen circumstances she has had to leave and that she is happy to loose her deposit (1.5 weeks rent). This means the rent is paid OK up to the date she left but that she has effectively left without giving any notice at all.

My AST makes no specific mention of a notice period, is the contract fixed for 6 months or can the tenant just leave without giving notice of any sort ?

Regards,

Richard

PS I understand that I am lucky to be left in a break even situation but wanted to clarify the legal situation for future reference.
