How do I end my tenancy with my landlord?
As a tenant, you are required to give notice when you are ending your tenancy. You have to give 60 days notice if you are moving before the end of your tenancy. If either the landlord or tenant want to end a tenancy before the end of a fixed lease, they are encouraged to speak to each other and negotiate a fair solution.
For more information, read this helpful guide from the Landlord and Tenant Board.
