    Get them to surrender the tenancy and release deposit to you.

    Is it worth going to small claims if they don't have any money? You can't get blood out of a stone. Sometimes it is just better to cut the loss and re-let.

    How much is the rent debt?

    Tenant want to give up contract before fixed term

    Due to health issues, tenant has expressed that they wish to give up contract before the fixed term ends. Due to the issues, I suspect there will be issues paying the rent so would prefer they go early. Do I just need to issue a deed of surrender or is there anything else required?
