How much notice the Landlord must give

< Back to list

This depends on the type of tenancy agreement and the grounds for termination (if any) – see table below. A fixed-term agreement is for a specified period (e.g. 6 months). A periodic agreement is one where the fixed-term has expired or no fixed term is specified. If a termination notice is posted to you, an extra 4 working days must be allowed for delivery.


Immediate notice if premises unusable You can give immediate notice if the premises are destroyed, become wholly or partly unusable (other than due to a breach of the tenancy agreement), cease to be lawfully usable as a residence or are appropriated by a compulsory process.
