If your landlord wants to end your tenancy

Written notices

Most landlords of private tenancies must give written notice if they want to end a tenancy. This notice period varies, depending on the type of tenancy you have. However, a landlord can apply to the court to end the tenancy at any time on certain “grounds” (ie reasons) for possession set out in legislation.

Possession will automatically be granted if the landlord gives certain reasons known as ‘mandatory grounds’.
