There are rules and timeframes that must be followed when ending a tenancy. A tenant, property manager or property owner can all issue a notice ending a tenancy.

If the correct notice and form are not used, the other person may ask for compensation.

When serving notices by post, the sender must allow time for the mail to arrive when working out when a notice period ends.
