Ending your tenancy

To end your tenancy, there are several things that you must do. If all these things are not done then it may cost you money:

  • Give four weeks' written notice. You can end your tenancy by giving four weeks’ written notice that ends on a Monday. A termination form (from your Housing Officer) or letter must be signed by you or, if you are a joint tenant, at least one (but preferably both) of you. Even if only one joint tenant signs the form, this will still end the tenancy for both joint tenants. 
  • Allow our staff to inspect the property. During the four-week notice period you must allow our staff to inspect the property. We will tell you about any work that you need to do before you leave. If this work is not carried out, we will do the work and charge you our costs.
  • Clear all items from the property. When your tenancy ends you must clear the inside and outside of the property of all items, including floor coverings, unless we have agreed that you can leave them. If you leave items in the property without our permission, we will recharge you for clearing the inside and outside of the property.
  • Return the keys. On the day your tenancy ends you must return all keys to us, at Ebley Mill, Stroud, by noon at the latest. If you do not return the keys on time, we will charge you an extra week’s rent for each week, or part week, until they are returned. Please make sure that you get a receipt for the returned keys.  Do not send the keys in by post. 

Please leave the property clean and tidy in line with our Moving Out Standards. Please also make sure that gas and electricity meters have been read and supplies have been turned off. Please also make sure that the property is left secure.
