Ending Tenancies Online Video Course (with detailed notes)

Its easy to start a tenancy - but do you know how to end it?

There are many circumstances when you may want to end a tenancy - for example:

  • If you want it back for your own use
  • If the tenant has proved unsatisfactory, or
  • Is not paying the rent, or
  • If you want to sell the property

See the video clip where Tessa sets out the course content.

In this detailed training course (which is a recording of solicitor Tessa Shepperson's workshop on 3 March 2022) we look at the various ways a tenancy can end - and what you can do if your tenant refuses to leave.

This is an important area of law as mistakes can prove extremely expensive!
