I've given the appropriate notice on my tenancy and paid my last rental payment. But I want to move out before the last day of my tenancy? I'm moving Saturday but the tenancy doesn't end until the 5th August, can I do this?

Yes you can move out but unless the ll agrees, you'd still be liable for rent until then.

I overlapped my last tenancy and my current one by about a week, I think I gave the keys back a couple of days early as that's when it was convenient for me to go to their office.

I've paid the rent (1 month in advance) so that's not an issue. I'm just worried about repercussions of leaving our current property empty for 3 weeks.

Just let them know so they can arrange to do a property inspection and get the keys back when you actually move out.

Your contract should say how many days you're allowed to leave the property empty.

We had a cross over period of 2 weeks between our tenancies. Just be aware you will be liable for all bills at big places until ur old tenancy ends. We handed back the keys a week before the official end and the estate agent used that week to show people round as I refused them access till all of our stuff was moved

Both places*

I've also paid the bills, we pay that to the LL too. Thanks I think we should be ok then! I just hope the LL doesn't let himself in while we're gone! It is technically ours until the 3rd.
