Moving out: When and how tenancies end
A tenancy usually ends in the following ways:
- if it’s a “periodic” tenancy (one that runs indefinitely), it ends by you or the landlord giving the necessary amount of notice
- if it’s a fixed-term tenancy, it ends by the tenancy reaching the agreed end date.
The Tenancy Tribunal can also make an order ending a tenancy in some cases – for example, if you’re three weeks or more behind in the rent.
