Back to top How much notice do I have to give if I want to leave my boarding situation?
If your tenancy is covered by the Residential Tenancy Act then you have to give 48 hours’ notice.
That way both parties know where they stand and it provides something to fall back on in the event of a dispute.
Back to top What should be in our boarding agreement?
If your tenancy is not covered by the Residential Tenancy Act then it depends on the boarding agreement you have with the landlord.
Your agreement should state your terms of giving notice.
For example, round-the-clock care at home can be very expensive.
The cost of long-term care also depends on the provider you use and where you live when you receive care.
Please note that the BDA office is closed over the Christmas and New Year period and will re-open on Thursday 5th January.
