Moving out and giving notice

Moving out and giving notice

If you no longer want to rent your home with us, it is important to end your tenancy properly. If you don't end you tenancy properly it could cause issues.

This might include moving out without telling us, leaving rent arrears or failing to comply with the terms of your tenancy agreement.

Problems of this type, may also affect your ability to rent with other landlords and housing providers in the future as many of them carry out checks with previous landlords so it makes sense to do everything properly.
