Ending a Tenancy - Termination by mutual agreement

< Back to list

A tenancy may be terminated at any time by mutual agreement, that is:

  • where the tenant and the landlord agree together to end the tenancy without further liability.

The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties, specifying the date when all liabilities end, and the tenant must vacate on the agreed date for the mutual termination to be valid (RTA s36(g)).
