Tenant's Notice to Terminate Tenancy

A Tenant's Notice to Terminate Tenancy is a letter issued by the tenant notifying the landlord of his/her intention to end the tenancy.

This document provides a simple template that enables a tenant to give the necessary notice, request the deposit to be repaid by preferred method, and to resolve outstanding issues such as vacation of the property. If the lease contains a provision requiring a notice period, the tenant must comply with this period unless the landlord allows otherwise.

There are different forms of tenancies under the Nigerian law. The most popular ones are as follows:

  • Periodic lease or tenancy: This is a tenancy that has a commencement date but no end date. The tenancy continues until it is terminated by either the tenant or the landlord upon the issuance of a written notice. The forms of periodic tenancies are weekly tenancies, monthly tenancies, yearly tenancies, quarterly tenancies etc. The weekly tenant pays rent every week, the monthly tenant pays rent every month, the yearly tenant pays the rent every year and the quarterly tenant pays rent every three months until the tenancy is terminated.
  • Fixed-term lease or tenancy: This tenancy lasts for a specified period as agreed by the parties. In this case, once this period expires, the tenant is required to vacate the premises except the tenancy is renewed. Also, once the period of tenancy expires, the tenant does not need to use this document (except in cases where the tenancy was terminated by either of the parties before the expiration of the term).

Note that this document can be used in commercial and residential leases.
