Ending your tenancy

Looking to End Your Tenancy

Sadly, nothing lasts forever, and there may come a time that either yourself or possibly your landlord will decide to bring the tenancy to an end. In most cases, your notice period will be two months unless otherwise stated in your Tenancy Agreement.

You can hand your notice in by e-mailing our property management team or by putting it in writing to one of our offices. However, please ensure you have received an acknowledgement of this notice.

When You Move Out

We’ll arrange a check-out appointment for you. The Inventory Clerk will meet you at the property to carry out the final inspection and take the final utility meter readings. The Inventory Clerk will then provide us with a schedule of condition once they have matched the check-in and check-out reports. Please note, if any keys are missing when you move out, you will need to pay for replacements of all locks.

We will endeavour to send you a copy of the check-out report within 72 hours of conducting the final inspection. The check-out report will list any changes/damages in the property from when you moved in, to when you moved out. They will advise us what can be considered fair wear and tear or damage. To make the process fair, we use an Independent Professional Inventory Company to examine the property. By law, we have fourteen days to refund your deposit after reaching an agreement, and there are no disputes.

Returning Your Deposit

Sometimes, there are disagreements over who receives the deposit, despite efforts by all parties to resolve the situation. If this is the case, the dispute can be referred to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, which holds your deposit. A professional, impartial adjudicator will resolve the dispute.

    I’m not someone to usually write a review, but I was highly impressed with the service I received from Samuel Estates. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a new home. I have had to move a few times over the last few years and she was the best estate agent I have ever dealt with. She was helpful, professional and answered any questions we had promptly and efficiently. She made the process stress-free and took care to make sure we was happy every step of the way. I highly recommend.

    Nicole Smith was helpful and prompt to resolve the issues I reported with the flat and made my stay much smoother for sure. I appreciate her call after the issue was fixed just to give that extra personal touch.

  • Dahye

    I recently rented a flat as an international student, and the process couldn't have been easier thanks to Samuel Estates, and more specifically my property manager, Lina Svegzdaite. She has been extremely helpful and accommodating from the moment I landed in London, and has continued to provide great support to my queries, no matter how small. Made moving and adjusting to a new climate less stressful and easy to navigate thanks to her support- highly recommend.

  • Ania Kocznur

    Have had the most seamless experience in finding my new rental with Samuel Estates. Bilal was responsive and on the ball in keeping me up to date with all matters in sorting out the tenancy, and whenever I called the office there was always someone available to help immediately or address my questions. The justmovein service provided for free too made the admin of sorting out bill transfers etc. completely stress free. Highly recommend!!
