Following the non payment of rent due on the 1st May, my tenants have requested an early termination of their fixed one year tenancy as a result of family change of circumstances.
Their guarantor to the Agreement (their father) has now paid the o/s rent following an exchange of emails/telecons, in which I have reminded them of their contractual obligations under their Tenancy Agreement and agreed with them that we will release them from their obligations as and when we find a suitable new tenant for the property.(ie we will only agree to termination of their tenancy when a new tenant has been found and has signed up).
Until this date the existing tenants remain responsible for paying the rent and all other costs that are identified in the Agreement, including any shortfall in the letting fees still due to our agents.
I pointed out to the tenants that, while I couldn’t insist on this, it would greatly assist in the speedy re-marketing of the property if they decided to vacate the property themselves. I pointed out that if they chose to do this they would still be responsible for the rent until the date that we agreed as their tenancy termination date, at which point the matter of their deposit would be dealt with as per the T&C’s in the Tenancy Agreement.
They have now vacated the property and have not (so far) rejected any of the points I have made concerning their ongoing obligations. Can you advise me whether by vacating the property voluntarily they have made it more difficult for me to enforce the continuing payment of rent?”
