    Tenant going on holiday- must landlord be notified?

    We rent a house and we will be going away for 3 weeks. Is is necessary to inform the Landlord?

    A family member will be keeping an eye on the place.

    I wouldn't want to think of them snooping around the house while we were away.

    Your contract should tell you. Most say 28 days, but have seen some for less.
    ASSUME NOTHING - QUESTION EVERYTHING!

      Legally required: no.
      However, it would be a sensible precaution. For instance, property insurance policies often demand that the policyholder should notify the insurer when leaving an insured property vacant; L could not do that (and so the policy could be voided in the event of a claim) if T failed to notify absence.
