Ending my Tenancy

Here are some facts about moving out of your home:

  • Your tenancy may be terminated on a Monday provided you give us one month’s notice in writing. For example, if you intend to move out on Monday the 28th, you should inform us no later than the last day of the previous month.
  • The termination can be in the form of a letter or email.
  • Your tenancy will not be terminated until you return the keys to us.  Even if you have given the required notice in writing, we will continue to charge rent until we receive the keys.
  • It is, of course, essential that you leave your house in a good clean condition. If any repair or redecoration is needed you will be charged for it.
  • You should remove all your furniture and property leaving the dwelling empty. We will pass on the cost of removing any items left behind to you.
  • Do not forget to have your meters read in order to avoid having to pay for any electricity, gas or water used by the next tenant.
  • Remember to have the telephone disconnected.
  • Please remember to have your mail redirected and give us your forwarding address so that we can send on any mail.
  • If you receive housing benefit or Universal Credit remember to inform your local authority or the Department of Work & Pensions that you are moving.
  • If the property is fitted with oil-fired central heating must make sure that you leave at least as much oil in the storage tank as was there when you moved in to the property.
