Tenancy policy

How can a tenant end their tenancy with the Council?

Where a tenant wants to end their tenancy, whether secure or flexible, they must give four weeks’ notice in writing to the council. The council expects to be able to visit the tenant during the notice period to carry out a property inspection and advise the outgoing tenant of their responsibilities.

Where less than four weeks’ notice is given, the council will charge four weeks’ rent in lieu of notice. This charge may be waived on a case by case basis.
