End of lease agreement

Should you wish to end the tenancy at the expiry of your lease agreement, you are required to provide twenty eight (28) days’ notice in writing to our office. The twenty eight (28) days will commence from the first business day we receive the Notice to Vacate.

Periodic Tenancy (No longer a fixed term lease)

You are able to provide twenty eight (28) days’ notice in writing on a prescribed form at any stage after your lease end date. This notice may allow you to vacate at any date nominated by yourself.

Leaving Before Your Lease Ends (Breaking Your Lease)

You may find themselves in a situation where you need to vacate the property before the end of the lease. In this case, you are responsible for covering any loss suffered by the owner as a result. This includes paying for the cost of:

  • All advertising incurred
  • Pro-rata portion of the letting fee
  • Rent until the property is re-let

We will help you through the process and commence searching for a new tenant for you as quickly as possible.

Assigning Your Lease to Another Person

If you find another person to take over the lease or would like a new flat mate to move in, you must seek the owner’s consent. The new potential tenant is required to go through an application process and be approved, as you did, prior to moving in. We promise to make this process quick for you!  The names the bond is held in by RTBA will also need to be changed to ensure the bond claim process, when you eventually vacate the property, is a smooth one.
