When I do serve notice on my rented accommodation?

The only safe time to hand in notice or arrange for moving at the point of exchange of contracts.   Until that specific stage in the conveyancing transaction, there is nothing contractually binding and either party can withdraw from the transaction.   Do not make any arrangements that could cost you money if the conveyancing transaction does not go ahead.   Whilst we appreciate that this can be difficult, and can add to the stress of the process, it is important advice that you should adhere to.
