Early termination not moving out
After several viewings which the current tenants insisted on being present for, we have found some new tenants wanting to move in a few weeks time. All credit checks and references fine.
After giving the current tenants a moving date they a few hours later have said they are spliting up and one of the joint tenants wants to stay. He says that he is still under contract and will stay until he finds somewhere else to live.
Can he remain in the property now he has asked to terminate the agreement? How can we get a vacant property and how long can this take?
