Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Can I please clarify - the landlord does not have an agent any longer therefore can we just post the keys to their home address and should we accompany this with a letter to advise we had vacated on the expiry date of the lease? Do we need to leave a forwarding address?
Thanks for your help.
In view of the time that has passed since expiry - will the landlord challenge whether we had vacated the property at the correct time?
We have witnesses to confirm we did not carry one trading beyond December and confirmation of cancellation of VAT, etc but is that enough?
Apologies for all the questions but this has been a notoriously difficult landlord in terms of lack of response and then suddenly hiring surveyors etc to approach us so we do not normally liaise with them directly.
