By law, you must give us four weeks notice in writing that you want to end your tenancy.
This will start on the Monday after we receive your notice.
You can give us notice by writing to us, or by filling in the Tenancy Termination form which you can get from the Housing Office either by post or in person.
Please hand it in at the Housing Office, or send it to us by post.
You can also discuss any special circumstances with us at that time.
What if I leave my home without giving notice in writing?
If you leave your home without giving us notice in writing, we will consider the property as abandoned and will take the action set out in your tenancy agreement.
What if it is someone else's tenancy?
The only time you can end a tenancy for someone else is if they:
- Are not capable of doing this themselves
- Have died, and you are acting as executor of their estate.
What happens once I have told you in writing that I want to end my tenancy?
Once we have your written notice, you will then receive an 'acknowledgement of notice'.
If your circumstances change, you wish to extend your notice, or require further help or advice, please contact the Housing Office as soon as possible.
What will happen if I leave my home before the notice ends?
If you move out of your home before the end of your notice period, you will still be responsible for paying the rent until the end of the notice period.
We will charge you full rent up to the date that your tenancy comes to an end. If you receive Housing Benefit, this will stop when you leave.
When should I hand in my keys?
You should hand in all keys for your home into your Housing Office, no later than 12noon of the last day of your tenancy. You will be responsible for further rent if we do not receive your keys on time.
What should I do if I want to move but I owe money?
If you owe us money through missed rent payments, rechargeable repairs, or court costs, it is important you clear these before you leave.
How do I terminate the tenancy of a garage or site?
You must give one week's notice in writing that you want to end your tenancy. This will start on a Monday and terminate on a Sunday.
You can give us notice by writing to us, or by filling in the Tenancy Termination form which you can obtain from the Housing Office either by post or in person.
If you require any further information or assistance, please contact us.
