Dual Liability

  • A tenant moving from one house to another ideally stops paying rent for the first home whilst simultaneously starting to pay rent for the new home.
  • Unfortunately life is not always ideal.  The tenant is likely already required to provide at least one month's notice to the old home landlord.  By the time the notice expires the house may be let to others.
  • Hence the occasional need to pay two rents for an overlapping period.
