    How to end our tenancy? 16th Jun 17 at 7:45 PM
    Our tenancy is up on the 27/09 so we are going to hand our notice to end the tenancy on the 27/08 giving our 30 days notice.

    What is the best way to do this? Now I don't want my landlord to turn around and sa we never gave him notice so whats the best way.

    Many thanks

    You can leave your tenancy any time before 23:59 on 27/09 without giving an notice: Albeit it is polite to do so** (** assuming this is not Scotland)

    I'd simple email/write-a-letter saying you're off, tenancy ending, what are key return arrangements please.

    Ensure you take LOTS of photos, ideally with a witness (deposit).

    Cheers, Artful (Landlord btw...)

    you do not need to give notice for the end of a contract. It ends when it is supposed to end as per its end date set out in the contract.

    naturally it is polite to let your LL know in advance that you do not wish to renew your tenancy and therefore would appreciate agreeing when and where to return the keys and complete the check out process.

    As others have said; when the end date of the contract is reached, provided you move out, then the contract ends.

    No notice required by law.

    But a friendly conversation, email or letter in advance indicating your intentions, and asking for details like how/where to return the keys etc is sensible and polite.
