Sample Notices of Termination

Notices of Termination

In order for a Notice of Termination to be valid, it must:

  1. Be in writing. (an email will not suffice)
  2. Be signed by the landlord or his or her authorised agent or, as appropriate, the tenant.
  3. Specify the date of service.
  4. State the reason for termination (where the tenancy has lasted for more than 6 months or is a fixed term tenancy).
  5. Specify the termination date and also that the tenant has the whole of the 24 hours of this date to vacate possession.
  6. State that any issue as to the validity of the notice or the right of the landlord to serve it must be referred to the Residential Tenancies Board within 28 days from the receipt of the notice.
  7. Be accompanied by a statement/statutory declaration where required

Please ensure you give the adequate Notice. The first day of a period of notice is the day after service. Therefore if the Notice is served on the Monday the period of Notice is counted from the Tuesday. The notice periods depend on the length of the tenancy and the reason for issuing the notice in some circumstances. Whilst not a specific requirement under the Act, it may be prudent to give an additional couple of days notice to ensure that the party receives the required notice periods

Note: If you are submitting a dispute resolution application for rent arrears or are disputing the validity of a notice of termination, you must attach the notices to your application
