Aston, I'm happy to pay the remaining rent, obviously I did

This answer was rated:

Hi Aston, I'm happy to pay the remaining rent, obviously I did not read the contract properly and the advice I was given was incorrect. Unfortunately my landlord is refusing to make contact with me other than hand delivered and recorded delivery letters which obviously adds to the time in replying, I have already found another place to rent and will be leaving on the 3rd October. What should my next course of action be? Clearly I want to avoid any court costs etc..also will he keep my deposit?

Hi, if you could officially rate my previous answer, and I will then be able to assist with this question. Thanks Al


Thanks for rating my previous answer.

As a Tenant, your only legal responsibility is to pay the rent up the end of the term and then hand over the keys to the Landlord/Agent on the last day. (There is no need to give any formal Notice to a Landlord if you are vacating at the end of a fixed term Tenancy Agreement).

You will also need to sort out the return of any Deposit which is being held.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards
