Ending your Tenancy


At the current time, the Town Hall is closed to the public.  Anyone in the process of ending their tenancy can post keys for the property through the letter box located at the Town Hall’s Market Street entrance. Pop the keys in an envelope with your name/address/forwarding address and date written on the envelope and marked for the attention of the Housing Department. Please email us on housing@barrowbc.gov.uk for further information and advice.
