End a tenancy

If you intend to end your tenancy and leave your home, you need to tell us before you do so.

 

1. Report it

To end your tenancy you must:

  • give 4 weeks’ notice in writing; this can be done by emailing or writing to SHP

  • pay any money you owe us before you leave

 

All tenancies end at midnight on a Sunday. Rent is charged weekly from Monday to Sunday.

 

2. Leave property

Before you leave the property you must:

  • take gas and electricity meter readings

  • repair any damage to the property

  • redirect any post or correspondence via Royal Mail

  • clean, tidy and clear the property, including the garden, shed, garage or balcony

  • remove all belongings including carpets, cookers and rubbish

  • turn off power supply, including the heating

  • close and secure all windows and doors

 

3. Return Keys

You must return all keys to Sutton Gate by midday on the Monday after your tenancy ends.

 

Things to keep in mind
  • we may inspect your home before you leave

  • we may carry out tenancy viewings of your property before you leave

  • you will be charged rent if you do not return the keys or they are returned late

  • you may be recharged the cost of clearing any belongings or rubbish left behind
