Tenancy Advice

Your tenancy agreement is a legal document which you sign at the start of your tenancy. It provides all the details of your responsibilities as a tenant, our responsibilities as a landlord and your rights.

If you break your tenancy agreement we can take action to gain possession of your home which could lead to your eviction and therefore you would need to look for a new home.

If you are not sure what tenancy you have or if you have any questions about your rights and responsibilities, please contact us.

In addition to help and advice that we can offer, independent advice can be sought at any of the following:

Ending Your Tenancy

Before making a final decision to leave your home, please give us the opportunity to talk through all the options we can offer. If you are having difficulties with your tenancy, we may be able to help.

If you do decide to end your tenancy, you must give us at least four weeks notice ending on a Sunday.  You must hand the keys back to us by 12pm on the Monday.  If you move out during the notice period, you are still responsible for paying the rent and other charges until your tenancy ends.

When you end your tenancy you must:

  •   Tell us where you are moving to

  •   Make sure anyone living with you leaves on the day your tenancy ends

  •   Leave your home clear of belongings, furniture and rubbish – this includes the loft and outside of your home

  •   Make good any outstanding repairs for which you are responsible

  •   Make good any changes that you made during the tenancy

  •   Make sure that you do not owe us rent or any other charges

Plus Dane can help you obtain home contents insurance easily and at a price that is affordable.  While many people often hope that nothing will happen to their belongings, sometimes things can go wrong unexpectedly.
