My tenant is due to leave 5/12/06 after service of notice, he has just given me his rent to cover up to this date. The house is trashed and I estimate it will cost me close to £1,000 to make habitable. I propose to keep his bond of £430 towards repairs. He is now leaving next week.

Do I have to pro rate the last part of his rent and return it or can I keep that also towards fixing the house up?
