Tenants obligations


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure of the answer to this. If a tenant signs a 12 month tenancy agreement and decides to leave without agreement  before the tenancy is up. Is the tenant then responsible for the remaining rent and community charge?

Rent yes, but it is often better to negotiate a settlement rather than pursue the whole. We can't (legally) take rents from 2 sources for the same period. So an agreed settlement to release a tenant from the contract would avoid such a claim.

By community charge do you mean council tax? If so the council will revert the charge to you from the date of departure by the tenant. While you might claim the tenant has the responsibility you would then need to pursue them for it.
