Title: How to vacate your property at the end of a tenancy


1
How to vacate your property at the end of a
tenancy
As youre packing your belongings into boxes and
planning your move to a new home, there will be a
number of things to organise and check before you
move out of your rental property. This is the
final, important step to ensure everything is
correctly in place in order to receive your
deposit back. So, to make your moving out process
that little bit easier, the Tod Anstee experts
have provided details on how you should vacate
your property once your tenancy is over.
2
Find all your documents relating to your tenancy
Firstly, gather your tenancy documents and any
other files that you have previously been given
by your landlord or managing agent. This could
include your tenancy agreement, tenancy
renewals, an inventory report and even receipts
for utilities paid. Not forgetting any receipts
for repairs and cleaning, or other property
services that you may have paid for. By reviewing
your tenancy agreement, you can follow an
accurate procedure on how to end your tenancy and
what you need to have in place, as well as any
outstanding payments or cancelling any services
you have used at this address.
3
Keep it clean
When preparing for your departure date, you must
clear all your furniture, personal belongings and
rubbish, except for any items which were provided
with the tenancy. A deep professional clean will
also get rid of any dust or spots of mess you may
have missed, from cleaning the carpets to
defrosting the freezer. Inspect the property by
using the inventory your landlord supplied when
you first moved in. This will allow you to ensure
everything is in the same condition and see how
much, if at all, it has deteriorated during your
tenancy. As a tenant, you are responsible for any
damages and repairs which are not fair wear and
tear. So, contact your Letting agent immediately
to get any damages sorted as soon as possible.

Some of the main tasks to consider as your end of
tenancy approaches could include washing the
windows inside and out, keeping the garden tidy,
washing the furniture and making sure all kitchen
appliances, especially the oven and cooker top
are spotless. If youre a student in a
house-share, it is advised you enlist a
professional cleaning company to take care of any
mess. This can save you time and might be worth
the small cost you can share between you and your
housemates.
5
Cancel your payments
Before you leave the property, make sure you
clear up any outstanding rental payments to the
letting agent/landlord. Dont forget to also
cancel your standing order or direct debit rent
payments after you have vacated the property, in
time and on the correct date. Oher payments
include, cancelling utilities such as gas,
electricity and water, a TV licence, Wifi and
council tax. Also, dont forget to notify your
bank, as well as any insurance providers and
medical services, as you dont want your mail
going to your previous address!

Prepare for your new property
Whilst youre preparing to move out of your old
property, you need to consider setting everything
up again in your new home. Dont forget to change
your address, set up your utilities and services,
and organise any removals from your old property
to your new one. The new tenants in your old
property or the landlord may not pass your post
onto you, so ensure all your important accounts
have your new address and arrange re-direction
with Royal Mail.

Moving day
When moving day finally arrives, take a final
look around and turn off any appliances and main
valves. Before you leave, also make sure all
windows and doors are locked, and if necessary,
take any photographs of areas you think may
require proof of condition. Lastly, make sure you
have all the keys ready to hand back to the
landlord and youre good to go! Find out more
