    Am now having visions of this stroppy tenant throwing the keys back on the stroke of midnight in order to cause maximimum inconvenience; followed by a major row about whether or not he then owes a further month's rent due to failing to return them on time...

    The GPS app(s) on my smart'phone give just that, military precision for the time (designed to be used to guide missiles....).
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

    Each room in my home has it's own time zone

    (and I know one of the guys that guides missiles, what a job!).

    This thread has descended into completely pointless discussions about midnight.

    they have informed me they intend to move on their own terms on the final day of their tenancy. They will not agree a time for inspection, they have said they will not return keys they expect me to collect and if I wait by the phone they will tell me when they are ready , they have said likely midnight!
    Is this allowed ?
    Of course they may vacate as late in the day as they like. But you're under no obligation to collect the keys immediately they vacate.

    They have also said that they have a legal right to be at inspection and this needs to be done when convenient to them and my keys will be returned once I return deposit!
    There is no legal right for the T to attend the check-out inspection. If the T fails to return the keys when the tenancy ends, then you may be entitled to charge them for the cost of changing the locks.

    It sounds like the T is playing silly games. Answer my question about how the tenancy is supposedly ending - it is quite possible that the tenancy doesn't legally end on 1st March therefore the T may be technically liable for further rent.
