    Unless you tell your agent to refuse the keys, you should write to the company and thank them for the return of the keys and confirm that you do not accept them as an offer to surrender.

    The issue will be when you start to relet it, as you'll clearly have possession of the property, so the tenancy will end.

      But you don't want to leave it empty for 12 months and then fail to collect the rent from the company.

        Thanks. So I avoid the issue by accepting the keys to secure the property but do not accept them as surrender. Then the tenancy remains with them until I relet the property when it ends.

          The point that the tenancy ends is when you take control of the property.
          If you have the keys and secure it (which excludes the company), you have arguably retaken control.

          You should simply refuse to accept the surrender (suggest that they collect the keys to make sure the property is secure).
          You might offer them a sum that would make you feel comfortable about ending the tenancy.

          The issue is that what you are strictly speaking entitled to and what common sense dictates happens is different.
          The agreement has come to an end, you have your property back, and the rest is just trying to make some money from the situation.

          You haven't really lost anything, just some income you thought you'd secured.
          If the tenant had, instead of renewing, asked for a two month contract, ending about now, you'd have agreed, who wouldn't.

            Thanks I understand. I am now told that the company is returning the keys on the basis that the property is vacant and the contract does not allow them to reoccupy with someone else.

            Many thanks again

              It will not affect your credit file, but will affect your reference checks when your employer is asked to confirm your employment details, and salary this will then affect you, even if your employer does not provide the correct information your wage slip would either confirm or support your income.

              Hi folks

              Perhaps nobody has ever asked that question because majority here perceptibly seems investors/businessmen. The question is that if someone who is relying currently to live in private rented properties whilst having a plan to buy his own home in future but currently fighting in...

              Funny enough only the defendant receives a copy of the default judgment, the claimant normally doesn't. You can request it from the court though, if it's a claim issued via the CCBC or CCMCC just call them and they will email it to you. If it's a local county court hearing centre call them too and they'll...

              Something which keeps cropping up which I don't for the life of me understand.

              Put into words by this recent quote on the Forum

              It grieves me to hear again and again and again where tenants with huge arrears are evicted solely with s21, local council not informed of arrears...

              Well, central heating systems (district or local) don't normally mean tenants have no control over their heating. They will normally still have TRVs on their radiators and a heat meter which tracks usage....
