My tenant wants to leave the property early. What should I do?
At the current time, we are urging everyone to show compassion and exercise flexibility as far as possible and we encourage landlords to engage constructively with their tenants. This may include allowing tenants to end the tenancy by giving less notice than allowed for in the tenancy agreement or permitting them to end the tenancy before the fixed term expires.
Technically, tenants are liable to pay the rent for the whole of the contractual notice period, or for the whole of the fixed term but, if a new tenant can be found quickly, allowing the agreement to end early need not cause you to suffer any loss.
Landlords can charge a fee to tenants if the tenant wishes to end the tenancy early, although this fee must not exceed the loss incurred by the landlord or reasonable costs to the landlordâ€™s letting agent if they are using one.
