My tenant wants to end the tenancy early. The tenancy does not have a break clause. We are working on reaching a mutual agreement on the terms.
My question is about how I can get this confirmed in writing to make sure that I am legally covered. Is an email confirmation sufficient if emails are not mentioned as a way to serve notice in the tenancy agreement? He is abroad right now and getting something signed may be problematic.
He is also currently a bit all over the place in terms of mental health, and his family is helping him to sort out ending his tenancy. I am talking to them as well as to him. They are in the UK. It is amicable with him and his family but it feels like they are effectively acting as his representatives. Is there anything that I need to consider with regards to that?
I am keen to get it sorted for my sake as well as his and don’t want to create additional complications but also want to do it in a way that does not expose me to a legal liability.
