I have moved out of my rented property with a contract still to run for 2 months which the landlord won’t surrender.  I have had to return my keys and the landlord is having work done on the property.  If I am still paying rent for 2 months are they allowed to do this?

The landlord is not allowed to do this. If you pay rent, you should have full access to the property and use it in full. You may even live there for the duration. Since the work on the property has probably begun, you should ask to be compensated at least half of the remaining rent. You’re likely not going back there, so at least try to make your due rent as low as possible.
