When it is time for fixed term in Seaham, or Cleadon to end, you have to give a Section 21 notice to the Tyne and Wear tenant if you want your property back.
Provide them with a section 8 notice in case they have broken the terms and agreements of the Sunderland, Tyne and Wear tenancy.
There are different types of notices, they can be two weeks to sixty days depending on the agreement as written in the Peterlee tenancy agreement.
