    Did you also provide an address in England/Wales at which notices may be served on you, as you are required to do under s.48 Landlord and Tenant Act 1987? (As MrsMug says, no rent is lawfully due until you provide this address).

    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1987/31/section/48

    Does the tenancy contract say anything about the method of serving notices?

    It was a 12 month agreement which was supposed to come to an end end of January. Six months break clause would have been a 2 months' notice in April.
    So it started late Jan/early Feb 2012? In which case, the earliest break would be late July/early August (notice served two months earlier).

    They dodged the question about written notice and said they sent me an email in July which they can not produce either.
    Even if they prove they did give notice in July, the break clause apparently requires two months' notice, so the T would be liable for rent for a further two months.

    abandoned for that duration. Tenant claimed they have sent me a notice by an email which I haven't received. They had not returned the keys either.

    My Question is can I take them to the court for unpaid rent and for the end of tenancy clean, abandoned
    property disposal etc.
    Surely you checked your bank account in the last 7 months?
