When​ ​moving,​ ​when​ ​do​ ​you​ ​legally​ ​have​ ​to​ ​give​ ​notice​ ​to​ ​your​ ​landlord?

Tenants​ ​must​ ​give​ ​proper​ ​notice​ ​when​ ​they​ ​want​ ​to​ ​move.​ ​This​ ​means​ ​that​ ​you​ ​must​ ​tell your​ ​landlord​ ​in​ ​writing​ ​that​ ​you​ ​are​ ​moving.​ ​The​ ​right​ ​termination​ ​date​ ​and​ ​when​ ​to​ ​give notice​ ​both​ ​depend​ ​on​ ​what​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​tenancy​ ​you​ ​have.​ ​For​ ​your​ ​notice​ ​to​ ​be​ ​legal,​ ​you must​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​that:

● you​ ​choose​ ​the​ ​right​ ​date​ ​to​ ​end​ ​your​ ​tenancy,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​called​ ​the​ ​termination date,​ ​and

● you​ ​give​ ​the​ ​notice​ ​to​ ​your​ ​landlord​ ​on​ ​time.

In​ ​Nova​ ​Scotia,​ ​If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​on​ ​a​ ​month​ ​to​ ​month​ ​lease,​ ​the​ ​Residential​ ​Tenancies​ ​Act applies​ ​where​ ​premises​ ​are​ ​let​ ​from​ ​year​ ​to​ ​year​ ​the​ ​tenant​ ​shall​ ​provide​ ​3​ ​months before​ ​the​ ​expiration​ ​of​ ​any​ ​such​ ​year;​ ​if​ ​the​ ​residential​ ​premises​ ​are​ ​let​ ​from​ ​month​ ​to month,​ ​notice​ ​is​ ​to​ ​be​ ​given​ ​by​ ​the​ ​tenant​ ​at​ ​least​ ​one​ ​month​ ​in​ ​advance.​ ​If​ ​the residential​ ​premises​ ​are​ ​let​ ​from​ ​week​ ​to​ ​week,​ ​notice​ ​is​ ​to​ ​be​ ​given​ ​by​ ​the​ ​tenant​ ​at least​ ​one​ ​week.

If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​unsure​ ​of​ ​any​ ​of​ ​your​ ​rights​ ​or​ ​obligations,​ ​we’d​ ​be​ ​happy​ ​to​ ​speak​ ​with you​ ​anytime​ ​902-539-2425.
