I wonder if anyone could give me their thoughts on what should be a blindingly obvious question.
I have 6 students in my HMO each on a individual tenancy, and one has just emailed to give me her notice. I’m amazed that for once a student tenant has gone through the right channels, and being a soft soul, wish her well as she moves into her boyfriend’s house.
Anyway, she realises that she must give notice on the next rent day (1st December) and will happily pay rent for that final month, but stated in her email that she’ll pay her share of the bills up to mid November when she physically moved out.
I see where she’s coming from, but isn’t there an argument that she’s also liable until the last day of her notice period (31 Dec) even if she chooses not to live at the property?
Clearly, the other 5 would prefer to have their bills divisible by 6
I will assume that I dont get another tenant to replace her until the new year
Many thanks for your thoughts
