Ending your council tenancy

Before you move out

You must make sure that your rent and any other debt (for example, court expenses or recharges for repairs) is paid up to the end of your tenancy. 

You must also make sure:

  • You leave your house and garden in a clean and tidy condition
  • Carpets and belongings are removed unless you have reached an agreement with the Housing Officer to leave items for the next tenant
  • Any sheds or outbuildings are removed if they are in a poor or unsafe condition
  • That you check with the Housing Officer whether any improvements you may have made are to be left or removed. You may also be entitled to compensation for some improvements that you have made
