Fulham were beaten by Nottingham Forest at Craven Cottage but Brentford's win at MK Dons ensured any lingering relegation fears went away with the Buckinghamshire side being the third and final team to take the drop.
Henri Lansbury was in inspired form, scoring twice and setting up Robert Tesche's opener as the home side settled for a Matt Smith consolation.
The opening exchanges were that of a turgid end-of-season affair as if both sides knew MK Dons wouldn't pick up three wins in their final three games of the season.
Fulham's achilles heel all season has been defending set pieces and it was no surprise that the opener came from a free kick that was whipped across by Lansbury and turned home by Tesche.
The opening goalscorer turned provider as he was fouled in the penalty area by Emerson Hyndman.
Lansbury stepped up and his effort crept into the corner, past Marcus Bettinelli's despairing dive.
Fulham thought they had a penalty of their own when Ross McCormack went down on the edge of the area but the assistant referee deemed the infringement to be outside the box.
The Scottish striker was not deterred and his powerful effort struck the crossbar with Dorus De Vries stranded just before half-time.
Fulham did pull a goal back just after the hour mark as McCormack's corner was turned home by half-time substitute Smith.
However, Forest wrapped up the points with 20 minutes remaining after a well worked move from Eric Lichaj led to his cross being turned home by Lansbury.
Fulham felt they had another penalty but, once again, the officials deemed the offence outside the box.
With MK Dons losing heavily at home to Brentford it means the Whites' second season in the Championship ends with survival.
It was not what Shahid Khan would want to be celebrate and changes are needed in the summer to ensure that a bottom half finish doesn't happen again.
