— Moving Out
What is the notice period for moving out?

Residents can give 2 months’ written notice after the initial 6 months of their 12-month tenancy with us should they want to move out.

What time do I have to check out?

You must vacate your home by 12 noon on the day your contract ends.

Do I have to pay for a cleaner when moving out?

As long as the home is left in the condition in which you received it then there will be no cleaning fees chargedĀ on moving out. We do offer a cleaning service should this be required.

Do I have to pay for an inventory?

We do not charge inventory fees. Inventories are carried out by you and your residents’ team on check-in and check-out. It is advisable that you attend both appointments.

Do I have to provide a final meter reading?

A final meter reading will be taken as part of your check-out inventory appointment completed by your residents’ team.

How do I get my deposit back?

Your deposit is protected by TDS and returned at the end of your tenancy. This will be less any reasonable charges that have been previously agreed by you. We are required by law to return this to you within 10 working days.

Do you offer a removal service?

Details of a removal service are available, this will be an external company recommended by Essential Living. To arrange please speak to your residents’ team who will provide you with the details.

I have planned to move out but I have changed by mind, what do I do?

Please give as much notice as possible as the lettings team may have already found a new tenant. If this is the case and a new tenant has been found you will be unable to stay in your apartment, but we will do our best to find you an alternative property in the same or another Essential Living development.

Who do I hand the keys back in to?

You can hand the electronic fob back to the residents’ team on the day of check out. Please put your fobsĀ in an envelope clearly showing your details and the apartment number.
