Where the rent is payable in advance (as in most agreements), the landlord is entitled to the whole of the rent that was due on the last rent day before termination even though the tenancy has come to an end in the middle of the rent period. [Ellis v Rowbotham 1900 1 Q.B. 740].

Where the property is relet within the period, our view is the landlord shouldn’t profit and in that case refund an apportioned amount.
