Notice periods checker

Use this tool to check how much notice your landlord has to give you.

Your landlord must give you a valid notice if they want you to leave.

A notice is valid if it:

  • gives you enough time

  • has the correct information on it

  • is given to you in the correct form

These depend on the tenancy type you have and what process the landlord is using.

Some renters have no right to a notice but this is rare.

It's harassment if a private landlord tries to make you leave without a legal notice.

How to check your notice
