Giving your notice

  • The named person(s) on the tenancy agreement must make the termination of tenancy request. The notice must be given in writing, as it’s a legal document.
  • A Power of Attorney or Court Appointed Deputy can instigate the process to end a tenancy. In these circumstances, evidence needs to be provided for the permission to act on their behalf.
  • If the tenant has passed away, the next of kin should provide a copy of the death certificate to begin the notice period.

What happens next

  • On receipt of the written notice, we’ll write to you to confirm the end date of your tenancy.
  • One of our lettings and marketing managers will then contact you to discuss returning the keys and any other required actions.
