Termination Of Tenancy
By signing below, I/we understand that I am required to give at least 28 days’ notice from receipt of this form to terminate my tenancy at the above address in accordance with my tenancy agreement.
I/we understand that I am liable for the rental payments until expiry of the 28-day notice period, or until all keys are returned to this office (whichever is later).
I/we understand that I will be contacted by my Housing Officer on receipt of my termination to arrange a pre-termination inspection of the property to identify any necessary repair work required to be completed by me prior to the keys being returned.
I/we understand that if I fail to complete the necessary repairs to a satisfactory standard, this will result in recharges being applied to my account to cover the cost.

Notes For Tenant:

1. Rent  You are liable for rental payment until expiry of the 28-day notice period and to ensure that your rent account balance is cleared by the end of your tenancy.

2. Keys  Your keys, including any gas or electricity cards should be clearly marked with the property address and returned to the Associations’ office prior to, or as early as possible on your termination date, unless otherwise specified by the Housing Officer or Property maintenance Officer. If there is a delay in returning your keys, you will be responsible for additional rent charges, or the locks will be changed, and the cost involved recharged to you.

3. Pre-Termination Inspection/Repairs Your Housing Officer will contact you within 1 day of receipt of your termination notice to discuss the reasons why you are terminating, offer advice where required and arrange a pre-termination inspection of the property. The pre-termination inspection will be carried out jointly by the Housing Officer and Property Maintenance Officer and will identify any repair work beyond those attributable to fair wear and tear which will require your attention prior to the keys being returned. Below is a list of standard items with all Cunninghame Housing Association properties when terminating your tenancy:
• All belongings to be removed from the property including the loft and the garden.
• All appliances owned by you to be disconnected and removed from the property.
• All floor coverings, blinds, curtains, and lightshades to be removed from the property.
• Non-standard light fittings, light switches, and sockets to be removed and replaced with standard white pendant bayonet fitting.
• Sky Dish, CCTV cameras, and alarm system to be disconnected and removed along with external and internal cabling and any holes in walls, soffits, fascia’s to be made good if applicable.
• Fill/smooth holes after items such as televisions, mirrors, etc have been removed from walls.
• Fill/smooth any damages to walls and doors.
• Any damaged items to be replaced with new.
• All bins to be emptied prior to returning keys.
• Clean and wash the property throughout.
• Credit of at least £1.00 to be left on pre-payment meters and gas/electric key/card to be left in the property.
The Property Maintenance Officer may revisit prior to the termination date to ensure identified work has been carried out. Failure to complete the work to a satisfactory standard would result in you being recharged for the cost of this work. Any items remaining within the property will be removed and destroyed by the Association and you will be re-charged for the cost associated with the removal of such items. The pre-termination inspection is a condition of your Tenancy Agreement, and your co-operation is therefore imperative.
