Ending a tenancy

ReturningĀ  your home to us

Follow our steps below to ensure a successful end to your Selwood Housing tenancy.

1. Give notice

Your tenancy agreement will detail your required notice period and when you must serve notice.

You must provide at least four weeks written notice. To serve notice download our tenancy termination form and send this back to us.

Please provide your forwarding address when completing the form.
We will write to you to confirm that date that your tenancy ends.

2. Make an appointment for a property inspection

Contact us to make an appointment on 01225 715 715. A voids supervisor from Silcoa will then visit you. You will be advised of any repairs that you need to do before leaving.

Make sure you read our guide on returning your home to us so you areĀ aware of how your property should be left and to avoid any unnecessary charges.

3. Let the right people know that you are moving

Contact your utility companies and give them final meter readings, plus your forwarding address.

Let housing benefit and council tax departments know of your change in circumstances.

4. Returning your keys

You need to return all keys to our office reception no later than midday on the Monday that your tenancy ends. You also need to pay any outstanding money owed at this time.

If we do not receive your keys by midday, you will be charged an additional week's rent.

Settling your rent account

Remember that you must settle your rent account with us. Not doing so could affect your chances of securing a home in the future.

If you're concerned at all about these costs, let your account manager know. They can advise you of your options.
