I Am In Rented Accommodation, When Should I Give My Landlord Notice To Quit?

If you are in rented accommodation, it is advisable to delay serving notice to quit on your landlord until contracts have been exchanged and a fixed completion date has been agreed. If you are required to serve notice, please let us have details of the period of notice required to enable us to bear this in mind when exchanging contracts and agreeing a completion date suitable for you.
