Due to the recent COVID-19 legislation introduction, the notice period to terminate a tenancy agreement has changed when providing notice to a tenant. You are now required to provide 90 days’ written notice when in a fixed-term agreement. The notice may be given at any time up until the fixed term expires but this cannot take effect until the agreement term ends. You as the owner must give 90 days’ notice and the tenant must give you 14 days’ notice.

If the lease agreement has expired, it may be ended by the landlord or the tenant by giving written notice of termination. The notice may be given at any time. The owner is required to give 90 days’ written notice and the tenant must give you 21 days’ notice.

If the property has sold and the lease agreement has expired, the owner may terminate the agreement by giving 30 days’ written notice, on the exchange of contracts for sale. The tenant is not required to give counter-notice during this time if on an expired lease.
