Hi,
I have a tenant who has left his keys and walked away from the flat half way through his tenancy. He has gone back to Spain and turned off his phone. The AST runs from 01.05.09-31.10.09. No rent has been paid for August and I have not been able to contact him. I have used a RLA tenancy agreement. My question is 2 fold.
1) Has this tenancy now come to an end being that the tenant has gone, left no contact details and not paid his rent. Can I gain repossession.
2) I have the deposit with the DPS. Will they accept that this tenancy is no longer in operation and refund the full deposit to me with the statutory declaration process. (I am sure they will not be able to contact the tennant either.

Thanks in advance.
