Customer Question

Hi, our tenancy agreement is ending at 23 of November, we are not going to renew the contract, the agency stating that our assured shorthold tenancy requires us to give 30 day’s notice prior to the end of your tenancy. The notice has been given at 5th of November. Now the agency is asking for the outstanding amount to be paid for the period 24 to 5 of December. If we move out on 23rd of November, by the law are we still obligated to pay the outstanding amount? Thank you.
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: What type of paperwork?
Assistant: Where is the property located?
Customer: Stoke-on-Trent
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I just would like to know if by law I am obliged to pay the outstanding amount even if I move out and give the keys on the end contact date.
