Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

Has the contract come to its natural end?

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Neither of them should leave the tenancy until the end of the term of the contract. At the end of the tenancy there is no obligation on A to stay. At that time as long as there is no problems with the tenancy A would both be entitled to their money back. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.
