What would you like to know about this please?
How much notice did she give?
Ok. So how much notice did she give?
What I need to know is how much notice she gave?
When she told you she wanted to leave, how long was that before she actually did?
I will need to ask some relevant questions before I can answer. It would speed things up if you could just give me the answers to the questions I ask though without any other information. I can always ask for more if that becomes relevant.
Were you able to replace her swiftly?
In that case, you are not liable.
She is a lodger not a tenant so the deposit rules don't apply.
She can give notice to bring the contract to an end sooner than your two month notice but not ten days.
She would need to give notice of at least fourteen days and probably nearly one month. You are entitled to keep any pro rata payment to cover that period.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Not for overpayment of rent.
She may have a claim for three times the sum of the deposit but it is not likely she would get any more than the sum of the deposit.
If you didnt secure the deposit and this is a contract to which the deposit protection scheme applies then it doesn't matter whether you have returned it or not.
No. The obligation is upon you not on her.
I wouldn't pay her the overpayment. It won't mean she can't claim.
the obligation is upon the landlord not on the tenant I'm afraid.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
