When does the lease end?

If a fixed term agreement is from say January 6 to June 6, it doesn’t necessarily end on June 6 unless both parties, within 30 days of the end date of the lease, give notice of their intention to either renew it or not. In other words, a fixed term lease does not end until both parties have contacted each other.

Tenants who rent on periodic leases need to give 21 days’ written notice to the landlord if they wish to leave. If the owner wants the tenant to leave then 60 days notice in writing on the correct form must be given. If a property is to be sold and vacant possession is required then the owner must give 30 days’ notice to the tenant to move out.
