Can I release a deposit early if the keys are handed back?

My tenant has informed me that they will be vacating the property earlier than their paid upto date. Last rent payment is to be paid on 5th Dec covering upto 4th Jan, but they intend to move out on the 14th Dec. They will be handing back the keys on the 14th Dec to me when I meet them at the property. If all goes to plan, can I release the deposit, or can they legally return to the property upto 4th January, even though the keys have been handed back?

Thanks in advance.
