Ending your tenancy

Your tenancy agreement is a contract between you and Ealing Council. As it is a legal document it is important that if you want to end your tenancy you follow the right steps, or you may end up paying rent after you have left the property. This process is called giving notice to quit. 

Notice to quit form

Your local reception office has notice to quit forms and can give you help and advice on how to end your tenancy.

Giving notice to quit

Your tenancy agreement requires you to give four weeks notice in writing to Ealing Council stating that you will be leaving your home...

What happens when a tenant of a property has died?

As soon as it is known that a tenant has died, the next of kin or representative of that tenant must notify...

What happens with your rent account?

If you owe Ealing Council any money for rent that has accrued during the tenancy you should clear the balance or, if this is not possible, make an arrangement to clear the balance with your rent officer.

If the account is in credit, Ealing Council will make enquiries with the housing benefit office to check if there are any outstanding overpayments of housing benefit. Once this has been confirmed, the tenancy has terminated, and it is known there is no further rent to be paid, a refund will be issued.
