Tenants - Ending Your Tenancy

  • You should provide notice served in accordance with your tenancy agreement. This should be done in writing by either:
    • recorded delivery to: Premier Properties, 7a Church Street, Uddingston, G71 7PT
    • or by email to:
  • We require your notice to be served as outlined within your own particular tenancy agreement. Confirmation of the length of notice required and when this becomes effective will be confirmed within your agreement. 
  • Please note that if you do not serve the correct notice, your vacate date may be affected.
  • You must also ensure that your rental payments and any other bills are up to date. Under no circumstances can your security deposit be used to cover rent or any other bills.
  • During your final month in the property you will be required to allow us internal access to carry out viewings for any prospective tenants. These terms of this will be confirmed in your tenancy agreement.
  • The property and its contents should be handed back in the same condition as they were at the beginning of the tenancy. You should check your property Inventory and ensure that:
  • All soft furnishings especially carpets, curtains and mattresses should be left clean, paying special attention to any heavy stains and marks if applicable.
    • This may mean having carpets professionally cleaned, and curtains dry cleaned and pressed.
  • All kitchen utensils, equipment and appliances should be cleaned and:
    • the fridge and freezer defrosted
    • washing machine soap tray cleaned removing old soap residue
    • dishwashers cleaned internally, no food waste left behind
    • ovens and hobs should be cleaned thoroughly leaving no grease stains
    • food should be removed from all the cupboards
    • all hard surfaces should be washed down and cleaned
    • the kitchen flooring should be cleaned
    • all plates, cups, cutlery, pots or pans not provided as part of your Inventory should be removed
  • All bathroom/WC furniture and fittings should be thoroughly cleaned with a bathroom cleaner/disinfectant paying particular attention to any stains or marks.
  • All the woodwork, skirting boards etc. should be washed down.
  • All items of furniture should be dusted, cleaned and left in the appropriate rooms.
  • All electrical goods and appliances and any garden equipment should be clean and in good working order.
  • All light bulbs should be working including kitchen hoods or extractor fans.
  • All picture/curtain hooks/hangers should be removed with the holes filled and re-decorated to its original condition.
  • Gardens and patio should be free from weeds and lawns cut. Hedges and bushes should be trimmed were necessary.
  • No rubbish should be left on the premises, except in the wheelie bin. Wheelie bins should be left on street for collection.
  • All sets of keys must be returned. Internal keys for cupboards, windows or keys for garages, sheds or outbuilding should be left inside the property.
Checking out:
  • Where possible, a check out inspection can be arranged 2 weeks before your tenancy is due to end. This will allow us to state which areas require your attention before you leave.
  • Unless specific instructions are given by us or your landlord keys should be returned to us at our office as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable for rent on a daily basis until the keys are returned.
  • A final check out inspection will then be carried out once you have fully moved out of the property. If suitable and at our discretion, you can be present when this is carried out. We as agents for your Landlord must take their instructions accordingly when processing the check out. Once the final check out inspection has been carried out, you will not have access to the property and therefore any remedial work will have to be carried out by our contractors at your expense.
  • Once the final check has been conducted and we have received instructions from your landlord, we will work with you and your landlord to reach an agreement where possible. Any discrepancies between the Inventory detailing the check in condition of the property and your check out inspection may result in deductions from your deposit. The money will be applied for from your deposit protection scheme.
  • Please note that your security deposit will not be returned to you until:
    • You have fully moved out of the property and all keys are returned to us
    • Our full check out inspection has been carried out
    • Any required repair work has been quoted and agreed with you
Ending your tenancy early:
  • To exit your tenancy early, you will incur the relevant advertising costs to re-market the property.
  • You will remain liable for the rent and other expenses until such times as a new suitable tenant is found or until the end of your contract.
  • You will be required to give full internal access to the property in order for us to find a new tenant. You should endeavour to keep the property clean and tidy at all times during this process.
To help you prepare for moving onto your next property and making the transition as smooth as possible:
  • You should return the property to its original condition. This will avoid any dispute regarding your deposit resulting in your deposit being returned to you quicker.
  • We will take a record of your gas and electricity readings during your final check out inspection. You should contact your supplier and provide them with your new address. You should also notify the local council of this.
  • You should arrange a mail re-direction with Royal Mail to avoid losing important documents. Neither we nor any new occupier will hold or pass on any mail on your behalf.
  • Following your final rental payment you should cancel your standing order.
