Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I have a tenant on a 12 month AST which ends Mid July, they are a nice couple with a baby.
A few months ago, they made me aware that they may not sign-up for another year and may relocate back to their parents, which was fine. I have now just received a note that one of them has unfortunately been made redundant and that they will be relocating to their parents. However, no dates set.
What we have received is not a written notification that they want to end the tenancy, just a statement of their unfortunate financial position.
What would you say the next steps are?
Naturally, I am happy for them to find a suitable alternative tenant or complete the tenancy in the final months. My concern is whether they are trying to get out of a months payment at the end of the contract.
