Answer

In most situations you have to tell your landlord in writing that you want to end your tenancy and move out. This is called giving notice. If you don't give proper notice, you could end up owing more rent. For your notice to be legal, you must:

  • choose the right date to end your tenancy, which is called the termination date
  • include all the necessary information in writing
  • give the notice to your landlord on time

If you rent on a weekly basis, your termination date must be the last day of a rental period. Usually this is the day before your rent is due. If you pay rent daily, then your termination date can be any day you choose.

You must give your landlord the notice at least 28 days before your termination date.

Exception: You can leave on only 10 days' notice if your landlord gave you a notice to move out for certain reasons.
