How to end your council tenancy

Terminating your tenancy agreement

If you wish to terminate your council tenancy you must give a minimum of four weeks notice in writing, expiring on a Monday. All keys to the property must be returned to the housing service by 12.00 noon on the expiry date.

In exceptional circumstances, (for example the death of a sole or joint tenant, or when a sole or joint tenant moves into residential care), the council will accept less than the minimum four weeks notice. A copy of the death certificate is required where the sole or joint tenant has died.

In these circumstances, please contact the housing allocations officer on 01455 238141.

Please be advised that the rent for the property will still be charged until the keys are returned to the council. A final payment agreement needs to be made on returning the keys to the property.
