Your tenancy agreement should say how much notice you need to give your landlord before you leave the property.
You can usually end a fixed-term tenancy by giving your landlord written notice up to 2 months before the tenancy ends. Your tenancy will then finish at the end of the fixed-term.
You can end a periodic tenancy by giving notice at the end of a rent period. The period varies according to the rent term. For example, if you pay rent monthly, you’ll need to give a month’s notice.
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.
Ending a tenancy early
Unless there’s a break clause in your tenancy agreement, your landlord can insist you pay rent until the end of the tenancy.
