Consultation on Notice to Quit

Consultation opened on 01 December 2021. Closing date 25 January 2022 at 23:59.


The Department for Communities is seeking views on the length of Notice to Quit periods that landlords and tenants give in the Private Rented Sector.


Consultation description

The Department wants to test if the 8 weeks’ Notice to Quit is a sufficient timeframe to allow tenants to find alternative suitable accommodation and therefore has included a range of options to consider.

A detailed piece of research was completed by the Chartered Institute of Housing on behalf of the Department and is summarised within the consultation document.
