Landlords ending a fixed term tenancy

For landlords a fixed term tenancy can be ended during the period of the fixed term if: 

  • The tenant has breached one of the conditions of the lease.
  • The reason for ending a fixed term tenancy is non payment of rent. The landlord must send a 14 day warning letter allowing time to pay the rent, before a 28 day notice of termination can be issued.
  • The reason for ending the tenancy is because of a breach of the tenant’s responsibilities. In this case, the landlord must state the breach in the warning notice, and in a 28 day notice if one follows.
