Advice Please:My tenants moved in 2 months ago, so are 2 months into a 6 month AST. (there is a 4 month break clause) I’ve received a text to say they have split up (they are both tenants) and the female tenant has moved out! The guy is saying he can’t afford the rent alone and wants to leave at the end of this month! I have explained that they are both responsible for the rent for 6 months, but as a goodwill gesture I will re-advertise the property and if I find a suitable tenant I will release them early?! As yet they haven’t stopped paying the rent but he keeps saying he cannot afford the rent payment alone.
I have Guarantors for them but would like to resolve the problem without involving the Guarantors at this stage.
Do I write to the female tenant and remind her of her contractual agreement to pay the rent until such a time I can find a suitable replacement for them?
