Notice to Quit

PLOT………                                                                                                                      

…………………..…………..(name of site) ALLOTMENT SITE

 

To: (Plot Holder)

I, …………………….., (position) acting on behalf of the …………………………. Allotment Association, hereby give you notice that your tenancy for the said allotment numbered Plot No ….   ……………………………….. (name of site) Allotment Site, (in the Register of Allotment Gardens kept by the Council) will be terminated on the …. day of ……*………… and you will be required on or before the ….. day of ……*…… to quit and give up possession of the said allotment garden.

This sample notice is just the very basic “bare bones”. You do need to explicitly state the reason that the notice has been given (e.g. for breach of terms of the tenancy agreement, listing the applicable ones) and this should be added in to the body of the notice. You should ensure that the reason given is clear and explicit and relates specifically and directly to the association. It may also be a good idea to mention any warning letters that have previously been issued and how the notice to quit fits in with the procedures in place for removal of tenants. You should state how the tenant can appeal and by when, with reference to your constitution. It would also be helpful to have the names of two trustees at the start of the Notice and two signatures at the end.

This notice is served in pursuance of the Allotment Act 1908 – 1950.

Signed:             …………………………………………..

Print name:        …………………………………………..

Dated this                     day of                  Two Thousand and ………

* This should be the same date, either a 12 month notice to be served to expire on or before 6th April or on or after 30th September in any year, or one month notice if the tenant is in breach of the terms of the tenancy.

 

Where the notice is for breach of terms, the tenant must previously have received a written warning giving a reasonable opportunity to rectify the breach.
