    Tenant leaving 5 months before end of Tenenacy

    Need some advice
    Rented flat to South African girl for a minimum of seven months. For health reasons she needs to return home after only 2 months occupancy,
    I have 6 weeks deposit and a uk guarantor. She would be vacating the flat in few days and had found alternative tenants, which unfortunately would not pass my lenders requirements.
    I am putting the flat in the market but fear that it would take a bit to rent as August is a bad month to find new tenants.

    What do I do if I do not find new tenants before she goes… do I retain all her six week deposit… ?? did not charge her any letting costs to collect references or prepare contract … and would have the extra expense of advertising / get references for new tenants etc. etc.
    I do wish to be fair with this tenant as she has done all she can to solve the problem but I have to pay mortgage and other costs…!
    Would be grateful for some advice
    thanks

    Put some keywords in the search facility as this question has been asked and answered several times.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

        Apologies if I have posted this before, but I cannot find my original post, if I did indeed post!
        I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

        I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

        It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

        The tenant just told me he can't pay not even half and didn't apply for benefit probably doesn't know how to. He said I can call Police. What to do now? I know the government back people like him....

        I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...

        Hi

        My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
        I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

        Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

        The tenant should produce evidence that he is not paying rent due to coronavirus. Also it does not mean he should continue living in the property forever and not pay rent due to coronavirus

        I allow dogs in our holiday let and residential houses - but I like dogs which I think plays a part in the decision!
