Leaving the Flat
Different rules apply to the process of leaving your flat depending on what kind of tenancy agreement you have. If you agreed at the start that you would stay until a certain date and then leave, then you have what’s called a ‘fixed term’ tenancy agreement. If there wasn’t any agreed end date, then it’s called a ‘periodic’ tenancy agreement. If you or your landlord is giving notice to end a tenancy, it has to be in writing and signed.
If you seriously break the conditions of your tenancy agreement, then your landlord might also be able to evict you. This means you get kicked out for doing something wrong instead of just because the landlord wants the house for something else. Your landlord has to go to the Tenancy Tribunal if they want to get you evicted.
