Your tenancy agreement should say how much notice you need to give your landlord before you leave the property.
You’re responsible for paying rent for your entire fixed-term tenancy. You can move out early without paying rent for the full tenancy if:
- there is a break clause in your tenancy agreement
- your landlord agrees to end the tenancy early
You can also leave if your tenancy is up after giving your notice (whether it is fixed-term or not).
Shelter has information about ending a tenancy.
If your licence automatically runs out after a specific date and you want to end the agreement, you should let your landlord know this before your licence runs out.
