If you want to leave your home, you must give us 28 days' notice to end your tenancy agreement. We will ask you to fill in a tenancy termination form - available here:
If you are a joint tenant, you can also end your part of the tenancy by giving us and each of the other joint tenants four weeks’ notice.
The date your tenancy ends will be 28 calendar days from the date we receive your written notice. However, in certain circumstances we may make the end date less than 28 days. Once we receive your termination notice, we will contact you to arrange a ‘pre-termination inspection’. You must leave the property clean and in good condition and remove any personal belongings or furniture. This includes making sure that any repairs which are your responsibility are completed. If you do not, we will charge you for doing this work. You must make sure your rent account is up to date and that you have paid any other amounts you may owe us.
We may want to carry out small repairs needed to let the property again. However, we will tell you when we do this. We also may ask for your permission to accompany housing applicants to view the property before you leave. Again, we will tell you beforehand. Finally we will arrange to visit you on the morning you give your tenancy up to collect your keys and make sure you have carried out all repairs agreed as your responsibility.
