Tenant's Notice to Quit: leave at end of lease term (Form C) 

Tenants use Form C to tell their landlord they’ll be moving out at the end of their lease. This will end the lease for all tenants (even if there’s more than 1 tenant on the lease).

Use Form C: Tenant's Notice to Quit to tell your landlord that you’re moving out at the end of your tenancy (lease).

Give notice

By law, you must give your landlord the following notice to end the lease:

  • year-to-year lease - give notice to landlord at least 3 months before the end of your lease
  • month-to-month - give notice to landlord at least 1 month before the end of the month you want to move out
  • week-to-week - give notice to your landlord at least 1 week before the end of the week you want to move out
  • manufactured home (mobile home) - give notice to your landlord at least 1 month before the end of your lease

The Notice to Quit will end the lease for all tenants (even if there’s more than 1 tenant on the lease). If 1 of the tenants provides a Notice to Quit, it affects all tenants in the unit.
