Ending a tenancy

Information if you're a landlord looking to end a tenancy with your tenant

The process you must follow

There are strict laws about ending a tenancy.

Find out what type of tenancy or licence has been created by using the Shelter Tenancy Rights Checker. This will then explain what process must be followed to end it.

Other factors

If a landlord provides a home as part of the tenants work, employment law is likely to be involved too.

If a landlord lives in the same house as your tenant they will be allowed to give you 'reasonable notice' which can be quite short.

Further information

Further information about the eviction process can be found on the GOV.UK website.
