Terminating Your Tenancy
Under the tenancy agreement that you sign at the beginning of your tenancy, tenants are required to give us a minimum of 28 days written notice to end their tenancy.
When ending your tenancy you must advise us if you are married, in a civil partnership or if you live in the house with another person as husband and wife. If you do, their agreement may also be required.
When giving up your tenancy with the Assocation you also must
- continue to pay your rent until your tenancy end date,
- pay any outstanding rent arrears that you owe,
- allow access to Association staff to carry out a property inspection,
- return your keys to the office before 12 noon on the day your tenancy ends,
- leave the property and garden in a clean, and habitable condition.
To end your tenancy please complete and return our Tenancy Terminaiton Form to the office.
Other ways your tenancy can be ended:
- by the landlord taking court action to recover possession on one or more of the grounds specified in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001,
- action by the landlord as a result of the abandonment of the house by the tenant,
- the death of the tenant where no-one meets the statutory requirements for succession,
- where the tenant or a member of the tenants’ household is the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order, and the landlord takes action to convert the tenancy to a Short Secure Tenancy.
