Give notice to end your tenancy

If you want to end your tenancy, you must give us at least four weeks’ notice. Your tenancy must end on a Sunday.

In some circumstances, you can give us less notice. For example, if the tenant:

  • has died
  • is moving into residential care
  • is transferring to another council property
  • is moving to a housing association (registered social landlord) property after nomination by the council

If you would like to request a shorter notice period for another reason, please contact us and we may be able to help.After you have given us notice, we’ll send you an “ending tenancy” letter. This will confirm your tenancy end date and any remaining rent due. You must pay your remaining rent before you leave the property. The letter may also include an appointment for a pre-vacation visit.

Note that if you want to end a joint tenancy, this will end the whole tenancy, even if the other tenant wants to stay in the property.
