I have just received a letter from my tenant telling me they will move out of my property on 9th March. They (two tenants) have a Short Hold Assured Teanancy running from 2nd January 2007 until 30th June 2008. They have decided to buy a house and now I am left in a position where they are refusing to pay rent going forward. At present their rent is up to date.

Do I need to serve a section 8 Notice? If so when and assuming they still do not pay up should I complete N5 and N119 Court Notices for recovery and re-possession. They have agreed I can market the property but I am not sure whether I can do this when the tenancy agreement still exists.

I have written to them explaining that they are in breach of contract and that I will be taking action to recover rent should they not pay. They have said they cannot afford to continue to pay because they will be paying an £800 mortgage. They are not on benefit and I have a Guarantor. I have copied my letter to their Guarantor.
