You have a right to begin eviction proceedings against your tenants. In some cases, you may have to have reasons for evicting a tenant. In other cases, you will simply have to follow the correct legal process.
You are not required to serve a Notice to Quit to bring a fixed term agreement to an end, but you should write to your tenants to find out whether they intend to stay in the property or move on. Finding out your existing tenants' intentions will help minimise the risk of void months, where no rent is paid.
Tenants should usually tell you in writing if they're planning on moving out. They may not have to do this if they're leaving at the end of their contract. You'll need to arrange a time to inspect the property, return the deposit and decide whether to rent the property again or not.
You have to let your landlord know if you want to move out of your rented home. The law says you do this in writing a certain amount of time before the date you move out. This written notice is called a "notice to quit".
Landlords should also give tenants written notice to quit if they want a tenant to move out.
There are many reasons why you may want to leave a tenancy early. However, unless there is a clause allowing you to do so in your tenancy agreement, it can be difficult to leave once you’ve signed a rental contract.
Moving home is stressful. Once you’ve given your landlord Notice to Quit, you should start planning your move. You need to think about disconnecting your utilities and finding alternative accommodation.
