Hi, thanks for your enquiry. If it is a fixed term Tenancy, I am afraid that unless there is a break clause, you won't be able to give notice to your Tenant to expire before the end of the fixed term. So, if, for example the Tenancy ends on 15th Jan 17, you would have to serve Notice on the Tenant no later than 14th November 16 (always best to give just over 2 months Notice). I hope this assists and sets out the legal position. If I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer. Kind Regards Al
