Looking to end your tenancy?
Sadly, nothing lasts forever and there may come a time that either yourself or possibly the landlord will decide to bring the tenancy to an end. In most cases, your notice period will be thirty days unless otherwise stated in your Tenancy Agreement. You can hand your notice in by e-mailing our property management team or by putting it in writing to one of our offices. However, please ensure you have received an acknowledgment of this notice.
A Check Out Fee is due when you vacate the property to cover the cost of the Inventory Clerk. Please check your agreement or ask your Lettings Consultant for these fees as they differ depending on the number of bedrooms in the property. The landlord will have covered the cost of the Inventory Check-in at the start of the tenancy.
The property manager will arrange a check out time for you and the Inventory Clerk will meet you at the property to carry out the final inspection and take the final utility meter readings. The Inventory Clerk will then provide us with a schedule of condition once they have matched the check in and check out reports. Please be advised that if any keys are missing at the end of the tenancy, we will be required to replace all locks in the property at your expense.
The check-out report will list any changes/damages in the property from when you moved in, to when you moved out. They will advise us what is fair wear and tear or damage. To make the process fair, we use an Independent Professional Inventory Company to examine the property. By law, we have fourteen days to refund your deposit once an agreement has been made and there are no disputes, but we will aim to return your deposit as soon as possible.
