Form RHW38: Landlord termination notice (converted fixed-term standard contract)

About this service

If you had a fixed-term assured shorthold tenancy in Wales that was still in the fixed-term period before 1 December 2022, it automatically converted to a fixed-term standard occupation contract on 1 December due to the Renting Homes (Wales) Act.

If you want to end the resulting converted fixed-term contract, this is the formal notice you must give to your contract-holders (i.e. tenants). It replaces the section 21 notice under the old rules.

You must give the notice to contract-holders before the end of the fixed term. It tells them when they need to move out. You must give them at least 2 months' notice. These are special rules that apply only to converted fixed-term occupation contracts.

However, you can only use this form if you've created and given a written converted fixed-term standard occupation contract to your contract-holders. You're not entitled to use the special rules for converted fixed-term contracts until you do this.

There are other qualifying conditions - our document questionnaire will guide you through these and warn if you need to take any action.

You can't use this notice if:

  • the fixed-term has ended;
  • you want to end the fixed-term early using a break clause; or
  • you've already given a valid section 21 notice before 1 December 2022.
