Ending your tenancy

Ending your tenancy

You must not move out of your home without telling us first. If you want to end your tenancy you must give us at least four weeks’ written notice (please remember your tenancy starts on a Monday and ends on a Sunday), this gives us time to find a new tenant for the property. Either tenant of a joint tenancy can end the tenancy; such notice will terminate the full tenancy.

On leaving you must:

  • Leave the property clean, empty and in a lettable condition
  • Repair or replace any broken fixtures and fittings you are responsible for before you leave the property
  • Allow an inspection of your home by Gentoo before you return the keysfor the property to us
  • Return the property to Gentoo with vacant possession
  • Tell your gas and electricity suppliers you are leaving the property so they can read your meters
  • If we have to carry out repairs which you are responsible for, clean the property, or arrange for items to be moved, we may charge you

You will also need to arrange for your post to be redirected. You can fill in a change of address form which you can get from a Post Office (there is a small charge payable for this redirection service). A tenancy always ends on a Sunday and you must return your keys to us by no later than 12 noon on the Monday after your tenancy ends. If you do not return them by 12 noon, you may be charged an extra week’s rent.
