Ending your tenancy

 

Your right to end your tenancy

You must complete and sign a Notice to Quit (NTQ) giving at least four weeks’ notice that you wish to end your tenancy. Your tenancy must end on a Sunday and the keys must be returned to us on or before this date, but no later than 5pm the following day.

Termination of tenancy form

In some cases we may agree to allow you to surrender your tenancy by giving us less than four weeks’ notice. If we do, we will confirm this in writing.

During the four week period, you must allow us to have access to your home to carry out an inspection. You must also allow us access to prospective tenants and our staff to view your home. We will confirm a date and time with you.
