Our tenant of 11 years has given one months notice which is up soon.
Apart from some clothes and other personal belongings she has removed all her furniture to the new cottage she has purchased. She told us she would be moving her stuff out gradually and we were fine with that as she had paid a months rent in advance when she first moved in.
Unknown to us, at the time she turned off all the heating and we had a cold snap. Thhe system sprung leaks as the pipes contracted, according to the British Gas engineer who had to be called out twice to sort the problem out.
She is at work all day and is no longer at the property apart from calling in once a week to collect mail.
We have had to be there to let everyone in and wait for jobs to be done and we have given up days of our time plus the expense of travelling to the house (a 40 mile round trip) to ensure that everything is secure as she has obviously now lost interest!
We are fortunate in that we have sold the house very quickly and have also had to be there for surveyors, EPC man, estate agent etc.
My question is this; as she is still legally the tenant until the 26th of October when we have arranged for meter readings and her returning keys what are her obligations to us, the landlords, until she moves the rest of her belongings?
