Landlord's Notice to Quit (for Common Law Tenancy)
This Landlord's Notice to Quit (for Common Law Tenancy) should be used by a Landlord to bring to an end a residential tenancy which is not covered by one of the statutory regimes.
Statutory regimes – with their own specific termination provisions – are in place for assured tenancies, assured shorthold tenancies and various other types of tenancy. An example of a tenancy which is not covered by a statutory regime is a tenancy at a rent of more than £100,000 per year. Another example is a letting of property that is not used as the tenant’s only or principal home.
If the tenancy in question is an assured or assured shorthold tenancy, it will need to be brought to an end in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Housing Act 1988. See the Guidance on Section 8 and Section 21 Notices which identifies the different types of termination notice and explains when to use them.
This Notice complies with the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 which imposes a minimum notice period of four weeks and requires certain prescribed information to be included in the Notice.
The Notice must specify a date on or before which the Tenant must vacate. Unless the tenancy agreement says otherwise, this date must fall at the end of a rental period. For example, if rent is payable on the 3rd day of each month, the last day of the rental period is the 2nd day of any month. Where rent is paid monthly, at least one month’s notice must be given.
