I live in a retirement home or care home. How should I give notice to move out?
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.
If you live in a care home or retirement home, you must give your landlord at least 30 days' notice. You can pick any date to be the last day of your tenancy, even if it is before the end of your lease. This is different from the rules most other tenants have to follow.
For your notice to be legal, you must:
- include all the necessary information in writing
- give the notice to your landlord at least 30 days before the date you want your tenancy to end
You can leave with only 10 days' notice if your landlord gave you a notice to move out for certain reasons.
