Termination of Lease Notice Letter

This is a template letter created to be used as notification to a student accommodation provider of a tenant's intention to terminate their lease in line with the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020 legislation. As stated in the Act a tenant may, for a reason relating to coronavirus, bring to an end a student residential tenancy by giving to the landlord a notice which is in writing, and states, the day on which the tenancy is to end, a day that is after the last day of the minimum notice period. Students who have entered into a student residential tenancy agreement on or after 27th May 2020, or have not yet occupied the property, can give 28 days notice while the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020 is in force. Students who moved in before 27th May 2020, only need to give 7 days notice. If you're sending the notice by post, keep a copy and send it via recorded delivery. If you're sending the notice via email, keep a copy of the email.
