A section 8 notice states that the landlord intends to seek possession of the property and also states the ground or grounds on which possession is sought. If you lie about a tenant, it could come back to haunt you. The period of time that rent can be charged after a tenant leaves depends on the type of agreement.
If rent is paid less frequently a tenant has to give at least one rental period of notice. There are two ways that surrender of a tenancy can occur: by "operation of the law" or by a "declaration of surrender". It should be noted that if the property has since been let out rent can only be claimed for the period of time before a new tenant has moved in.
Giving notice Check if your tenancy agreement says anything about how you should give notice.
Be able to support any claim that you make with proper documentation or evidence. To be valid, a tenant's notice must end on the first or last day of a tenancy period. Instead, landlords usually need to comply with legal requirements prior to ending any tenancy and give notice in a legally prescribed form.
A landlord must be sure that the tenant has surrendered the tenancy by abandonment, before re-letting the property or changing the locks.
Contact your nearest Citizens Advice for help if you want to end a joint tenancy. This is called 'surrendering your tenancy'. It may be a good idea to send the letter by recorded delivery, or to otherwise keep some proof of postage.
