    Sense check 1st tenant leaving

    As a new landlord, my first tenant in my 4 room HMO is leaving.

    I just want to check soem basics should I have missed anything!

    Original AST was for 4 months (at tenant request) athough I know I would have had to provide 6 months.

    Anyway, she wants to leave in a month and will probably accept this despite her only being 3 months in to her 4 month contract.

    So I guess I just need to :

    1. Email confirming receipt of her notice to vacate
    2. Meet up on the vacate day at the property and both sign the 'check out' form and I get the keys from the tenant
    3. Get online and confirm to the Deposit Protection Service can pay her the deposit back

    Am I missing anything or any good practice?

    Is there any other document I need to get from tenant to legally evidence departure?

    Thanks.

    There is no minimum term for an AST. (But you cannot obtain a possession order via s.21 procedure to take effect sooner than 6 months after the tenancy began).
