Dear Sir/Madam My Tenancy Agreement is a fixed term and it ends on 13th March 2014. The Tenancy Agreement has been signed via Estate Agency "A". As my Landlord is outside of UK I did emailed him asking if he will come on 13th March 2014 to do checkout with me so I can return the keys. He sent me an email back saying that he is in process of changing the Estate Agency and on 13th March 2014 an different agent will come to collect the keys :-(He also mentioned that he's going to come to UK on 15th March 2014 and we can meet us on 16th or 17th March 2014 so he will check the property. It is completely ridiculous to give back the keys without checking out as between 14th and 16th March 2014 the property can be make dirty or damaged by new tenants or due to any viewings made by any agent:-( Also the electricity, gas or water can be used. I don't think so he can ask me for such of ridiculous things :-( Please let me know what to? If he is abroad that's not my problem isn't? He can ask for the checkout to be done on 13th March 2014 by any agent or inventory company in behalf of him, isn't? I know I can't keep the keys legally longer then until 13th March 2014 but I don't think asking me to return the keys before check out procedure is legally too. Totally illogical.:-( Waiting for your advice... Yours sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
