How much notice do I need to give my landlord to move out at the end of the agreement?

For a fixed term agreement longer than 90 days, a tenant needs to give at least 28 days written notice prior to the expiry of the fixed term to end the tenancy at the expiry of the fixed term otherwise it will automatically become a periodic tenancy.

A fixed-term tenancy of 90 days or less is called a short fixed-term tenancy. If a short fixed-term tenancy comes to an end, it doesn’t automatically become a periodic tenancy. The tenancy will end and the tenant has to move out, unless they come to an agreement with the landlord.

If you’re a tenant of a myRent tenancy you can generate and send an end of tenancy notice if eligible by following the steps here
