S5 Housing act 1988 states that the tenancy and obligations to pay rent continue until the tenant does acts consistent with ending his tenancy ( i.e. giving the keys back or clearing everything out) or you get a court order for possession. In the absence of either you run the risk of being sued for unlawful eviction
