Landlord Termination Letter to the Tenant

A fixed time tenancy cannot be ended by the landlord before time. However, the tenancy agreements in which the ending date is not specified can be terminated by the landlord by sending a notification. The law suggests that

  • Whenever such termination notices are issued, they should be presented in written form.
  • The tenant should be notified of the termination 60 to 90 days before the termination date.
  • A landlord cannot ask a quick evacuation by sending speedy notices.

Termination letters are important if a landlord wants to end a tenancy contract with his tenant and particularly when he is not interested in making a new contract with him. Below is one such sample.
