A Tenant's Notice to Terminate Tenancy is a letter that can be used by a tenant to inform the landlord that they intend to end a tenancy and leave the rental property. Some tenants may decide to vacate the property before the expiration date, and in some other cases, some tenants may, for some reason, be unable to leave the property even when the tenancy has already expired. Therefore, a tenant should use this document to notify the landlord of the date they will be vacating the property to avoid disputes with the landlord.
This document enables a tenant to give the necessary notice, request the deposit to be repaid by a preferred method, and resolve outstanding issues such as the date they will be vacating the property.
