Property is let on AST till 4 March 2013 using the RLA contract. On 9 October they sent a text telling me they are leaving the country and will hand over keys on 5 November. Written notice received 11 October.

As they have given less than one month's notice as dictated by their contract, can I presume that their deposit will automatically be forfeited in full to me? Deposit is lodged with DPS.
