Ending your tenancy


How to end a tenancy

A tenancy termination (Notice to Quit) form must be completed giving at least four weeks’ notice to end a tenancy. The tenancy must end on a Sunday and the keys must be returned to us on or before this date, but no later than 12 noon the following day. The front door key to the property must be returned to the Council (using the key safe provided - a key code will be provided to you). Any remaining keys can be left in a kitchen drawer. Please email us to tell us when you have done this.

Termination of tenancy form

If you do not wish to use the e-form above, you may download a copy of the form in either Microsoft Word or PDF format:

During the four week period, you must allow access to your home to carry out an inspection. We will confirm a date and time with you.


Tenants who have died

If you are the Executor of a sole tenant who has died, you will be asked to provide proof of probate/letter of administration . You should be aware that any housing benefit that a tenant was entitled to ends on the date of death. Any rent arrears which may be left at the end of the tenancy are charged to the deceased tenant’s estate.


Leaving the property

When you move out of your home, there are certain things you must do. The following leaflet contains important and useful information about ending a tenancy and moving home.
