Tenant's Letter Giving Notice to End Tenancy

This is a letter that can be used by a tenant to give notice to end a tenancy.

The document provides a simple template that enables a tenant to give the necessary notice, request the deposit be repaid by preferred method, and to resolve outstanding issues such as vacation.

Please note that if the lease to be ended contains a provision requiring a notice period it may be necessary to comply with this period unless the landlord allows otherwise.

Please also note that this document cannot be used by a landlord. Instead, landlords usually need to comply with legal requirements prior to ending any tenancy and give notice in a legally prescribed form.

 

How to use this document

Once you have completed this document simply post it to the landlord.

The letter should be sent as soon as possible after the tenant has decided to end the tenancy.

It may be a good idea to send the letter by recorded delivery, or to otherwise keep some proof of postage.

 

Applicable Law

The applicable legislation will vary depending upon the type of tenancy agreement, but in most cases the Housing Act 1988 is likely to apply.

In addition, for tenancies commencing after 6 April 2007, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (as established by the Housing Act 2004, amended by the Localism Act 2011 and Deregulation Act 2015) will apply.
