When to give your notice

Your notice cannot be backdated. It'll start on a Monday and end on a Monday, four weeks later.

Before you start

You'll need your rent account number to submit this form.

If you change your mind

If you change your mind about ending your tenancy, you'll need to contact us straight away.

If you don't hand the keys in by 12noon, you may be charged extra rent payments, and the costs for us to change the locks.
