    Fixed term tenancy

    You have to pay your rent until at least the end of your fixed term. You might need to pay rent after your fixed term if you:
    • stay in the property
    • don’t give notice in the correct way - this will depend on the type of tenancy you have and what your tenancy agreement says
    https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/ho...-your-tenancy/


    Look above official quote. Tenant has to pay until the last day of tenancy and only be liable to pay more rent if don't leave or don't give the notice which in case of fixed term tenancy he isn't bound to give. In that case due to landlord's own messy date of rent collection has no right over surplus rent.

      That's not the point.
      The tenant doesn't owe the landlord any rent after the tenancy has ended, but there's no mechanism for returning any money already paid after the tenancy ends.
      The only mechanism that overrides that is a) if the tenancy agreement has such wording (never happens) or b) the tenancy has ended as a result of a section 21 notice, which was added by the deregulation act (which removed the requirement for s21 notice to end at the end of a tenancy period).
      I suspect because someone noticed that this would mean that more tenancies would end not at the end of a tenancy period, and there was no other mechanism for returning rent paid in advance.

      If there was already such a requirement, most of that section of the act would be redundant.

      It's more than likely that most landlords and tenants sort this out between themselves, because the tenant knows they're moving out before they pay the last month's rent, so they would typically pay what they think they'll be due.

      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        You mean in the last month simply pay what will cover from 1st of the month until the last day of tenancy date instead pay the full month rent.

          Yes, most landlords aren't trying to overcharge their tenants.

            If a tenancy agreement hasn't got break clause then how a 12 months tenancy agreement can be terminated earlier? What law says about it as how much the tenant forfeit or owe?

              A tenancy can be surrendered before the end of a fixed term (without a break clause) in the by the tenant with the landlord's agreement.
              A tenancy can be terminated before the end of a fixed term by a court following notice under section 8 of the Housing Act 1988
              A tenancy agreement can be ended by mutual agreement with the tenant and landlord.
              A tenancy agreement can be ended by a court if it is impossible for it to continue.
              Most tenancy agreements end if the property burns down or floods.

                But can the tenant be still charged with the rent until the last date of tenancy if he wishes to end tenancy early. For example due to change in circumstances or some hardships arise or he has to travel abroad for longer time. Can landlord still refuse to consider these and ask to pay the full rent until the tenancy ends?

                  Yes, the tenant can still be charged. The tenant has entered an agreement where he is legally obliged to pay the rent until the last day, and the landlord is legally obliged to let the property to the tenant. A landlord can still refuse to consider whatever problem the tenant has and ask for the full rent.
