Tenants are required to give at least 28 days clear notice to terminate their tenancy.
- These 28 clear days must finish at the end of a full rental period. Any tenancy commenced prior to 8 October 2016 will automatically end on a Sunday; however, if your tenancy commenced after 8 October 2016, the rental period will depend on the day on which your tenancy started, that is, if your tenancy started on a Thursday, it will end on a Wednesday. If you require clarification on your expected tenancy termination date, please contact the Customer Services team on 01248 752 200.
Note: If you make a mistake when completing the form, we will advise you of the correct termination date in writing.
- The council must receive the notice 1 clear day in advance of the notice period.
- If it is a joint tenancy, the notice will end the whole of the tenancy even if it is not signed by all of the joint tenants. This means everyone living in the property will have to move out by the termination date.
- If you are prepared to allow prospective new tenants to view the property during the notice period (accompanied by a housing officer), you will be entitled to receive high street shopping vouchers to the value of £60 when you hand the keys back at the end of the tenancy. Please note that if you have any housing related debts (rent arrears, rechargeable repairs, court costs), the payment will be offset against them.
To terminate your tenancy, please fill in the online form (you must register first, if you have not already done so).
