Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Could you please confirm if your Tenancy is for say 6 or 12 months and it ends on 9th September, as opposed to a Tenancy whic has already expired and is running from month to month?
Thanks for your reply.
Well, upon the fixed term of a Tenancy ending (you will need to check your Agreement to see what day it ends), you are free to vacate the property and return the keys to the Landlord/their Agents.
You are under no legal obligation to give any Notice to your Landlord of your wish to do this, even if the Tenancy agreement says you must give a period of notice.
So, feel free just to vacate!
I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.

As regards ***** ***** withholding your Deposit, these monies will be held in aTenant's Deposit Scheme and the scheme provider will liaise with you and your Landlord as regards ***** ***** which arises concerning the return of the deposit. Your Landlord certainly won't therefore be legally entitled to claim your deposit back on the grounds that you have not given notice, as no notice is required.
A Landlord should produce a Gas Certificate every 12 months.
Gas safety is enforced by the Health and Safety Executive. It is up to them to bring prosecutions. Though the HSE can prosecute for breach of the regulations, my experience of them is that they have little interest in past infringements but are more concerned with present issues. A Tenant is not entitled to withhold rent/claim compensation if their Landlord has breched the rules as it is a crminal offence. If your Landlord has done the Gas check in the last 12 months, there is little action HSE are likely to take, but if it has not been done in the last 12 months, you may want to report the matter to them. As I have said, it won't benefit you finacially, however.
I hope this helps.
