To end your tenancy you will need to provide written notice to the landlord via our agency with the notice period starting when your notice is received by our office. The notice period required is different depending on the situation. The termination notice can be given at any time and does not have to line up with the rent payment cycle. You must pay the rent up to and including the day the notice period ends and you vacate. Retaining keys for the property constitutes tenancy and rent will be charged until all keys have been returned.
Some examples of notice periods required below:-
At the end of the fixed term
If you want to end your tenancy when the fixed term period is ending, you need to give at least 14 days' notice. This notice can be given up to and including the last day of the fixed term.
After the fixed term
If you want to end your tenancy after the fixed term has ended, and you have not signed another agreement, you need to give at least 21 days' notice.
Please refer to your Residential Tenancy Agreement or contact us directly should you have any questions regarding the required notice to vacate.
