A tenancy agreement is a legally binding agreement that can only be ended in certain ways. The landlord or the tenant will need to give the other party a written termination notice with the applicable notice period to end a tenancy.
In some cases, the landlord or tenant can apply directly to the Tribunal for a termination order without needing to issue a termination notice.
Minimum Notice Period
The notice period depends on the type of agreement (fixed-term agreement or periodic agreement) and the reasons for termination. These notice periods are designed to give tenants enough time to find another rental property, and landlords enough time to find a tenant.
Domestic Violence – No minimum notice period
