If you do decide to end your tenancy with Rooftop there are some things that you’ll need to do to make sure that the process moves smoothly for everyone

These are designed to get you ready to move on, and to get the property ready to go to another Rooftop Tenant, so that their experience of having a new home can begin with the excitement that you felt. If at any time you need help completing the steps for moving out, or you’d like more information about the process then get in touch with your Neighbourhood Officer.

What do you need to do?

When you end your rooftop tenancy you must give us 4-weeks’ notice of ending the tenancy in writing, and you need to supply us with a forwarding address.

 

It’s always a good idea to get in contact with our Income Team to make sure you’ve paid off your rent account, as you shouldn’t be in any arrears before moving out.

 

Once you’re ready to move out, your home must be clean and tidy, that includes taking out all of your belongings and getting rid of any rubbish.

 

Clearing up and moving on...

Return all keys and / or entry fobs, including ones to any communal areas, and gas and electricity or cards if you have them. The gas and electricity also need to be in credit when you leave.

 

If we need to make repairs to the property, or dispose of unwanted property or rubbish, before someone new moves in you will be charged for the costs. You also need to remove any unauthorised home improvements, particularly things like conservatories without planning permission… and yes that does happen.

 

If you ever have any difficulty with these steps, or you need more information, please contact your Neighbourhood Officer or fill in our simple contact form and we’ll get back to you.

A great home for the next family

Return all keys and / or entry fobs, including ones to any communal areas, and gas and electricity or cards if you have them. The gas and electricity also need to be in credit when you leave.

And with all of that done you can move on from your home and help another local family find a place to call their own.
