End A Fixed Term Rental Early

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Would appreciate any help.

We signed a fixed term tenancy agreement starting 01 July 2013 for 12 months.

The contract states that after 4 months, we can give 2 calendar months notice.

We have found alternate accommodation and wish to exit the agreement asap.

Since it is now the end of October 2013 I believe that we are within our rights to offer a letter of notice for the calendar months of November and December.

Is there anything we should be aware of before we notify the LA in writing?

Are there any stock letters that we can base our letter on?

Thanks in advance!

Jim

Hi Jim,

I think you are correct. If you provide notice prior to Nov 1st your last day will be Dec 31st. I don't think there is any reason for a stock letter. I'd send one by recorded delivery (although you don't have much time) and provide a copy by hand.

Your LL may want to have viewings through this period. Although you can refuse, you could be better off allowing this if they find someone sooner - (I'm assuming you may want to get out earlier.
