Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you want to achieve please?
Yes, you do. The new tenant was found and went through referencing.
As such the tenant has been surrendered and come to an end. You can not have 2 people letting the property.
So yes, it is at an end.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
But you had handed it back and they accepted the keys. It had ended.
Does that clarify?
You can seek to claim it back. If they refuse you can issue a small claim at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
Does that assist?
If this answers your question could I invite you rate my answer 3, 4 or 5 stars on the page before you leave today.
I am only paid for my work on this question if you rate my answer, using the star system. Please do not forget! Thank you.
