Notice to Quit (Residential)

Updated for 2014

A Notice to Quit is used for the purpose of terminating a residential tenancy that has been created between a landlord and a tenant.

This notice to quit complies with the requirements stipulated under the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 which govern the termination of residential tenancies.

Further details are set out below.

See below for a full product description
 

A landlord is only permitted to terminate a residential tenancy created under the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 in very limited circumstances. Moreover, where the landlord is entitled to terminate the tenancy, he or she will need to comply with the strict criteria set out under that act.

Landlords can only terminate tenancies created under the Residential Tenancies Act after specific times have elapsed unless:

• the tenant has failed to comply with his obligations under either the residential lease agreement governing the letting or under the Residential Tenancies Act;

• the rented premises is no longer suited to the tenants’ needs;

• the landlord requires the rented premises for his or her own use or that of an immediate family member;

• the landlord intends to sell the rented premises;

• the landlord intends to refurbish the rented premises; or

• thelandlord plans to change the business use of the rented premises (e.g. turn it into an office).

Where the landlord is entitled to terminate the residential lease agreement or residential tenancy, he will need to do so in writing by serving a Notice to Quit on the tenant – usually at the address of the rented property.

In the notice to quit, the landlord must give the tenant a specific amount of notice of his intention to terminate a residential lease agreement or residential tenancy. The amount of notice required varies depending on how long the tenancy has been in existence at the date on which the Notice to Quit is served.

If the tenant is in breach of his obligations under the terms of the residential lease agreement, the landlord will be entitled to terminate the residential lease agreement on the giving of only 28 days’ notice. If the tenant is guilty of any form of anti-social behavior, the residential tenancy can be terminated on the giving of only 7 days’ notice to the tenant.

Where a tenant has failed to pay his rent, the landlord may only serve a 28 notice of termination if the rent has remained outstanding for a particular period of time after the landlord has served a written notice on the tenant calling for him to pay the rent owing.
