It's for any Berneslai Homes' tenant who is moving out of their Berneslai Homes' property into a property where they will no longer be a Berneslai Homes' tenant. This includes a joint tenant who wants to tell us they have moved out and left the other joint tenant in the property.

If you are transferring to another Berneslai Homes' property use this form.

If you are ending the tenancy on behalf of a tenant who has died please use this form.

What happens once I have given notice?

When you give us notice, we will do the following:

• Contact you to arrange to inspect your home to ensure that the property is in a good condition and that you have not caused any wilful damage. If we find any damage or if the property and gardens are untidy, we will charge you for putting things right.
• Tell you exactly when your tenancy will end; and
• when and where you have to hand the keys in.

If you give us less than four weeks’ notice we have the right to charge you rent up until the end of your tenancy (the end of the four week notice time). We will do this even if you have moved out of the property and given us back your keys.

Extending or cancelling your notice

If we allow you permission to extend or cancel your tenancy termination, your gas and electric may have already switched over to our preferred supplier for which you would be responsible for.
