Notice in Writing
When you intend to vacate the property, in all instances we require your notice in writing, either by letter or email.
Ending a Fixed Term
If you are leaving at the end of your current fixed term lease, we require at least 14 days notice in writing. Please note that this amount of notice needs to commence when we have received your notice, not when it was posted. It must be signed by all tenants, otherwise the notice will not commence until all tenants have signed.
Ending a Non-Fixed (Periodic) Term
If you are leaving on a non-fixed term (periodic) lease, we require at least 21 days notice in writing. Please note that this amount of notice needs to commence when we have received your notice, not when it was posted to us. It must be signed by all tenants, otherwise the notice will not commence until all tenants have signed.
Breaking your Lease
A “Lease Break” situation occurs when the tenants during the fixed term tenancy wish to vacate the property prior to the lease expiry date. Should you find yourself in this position you should notify your Property Manager in writing immediately. Please refer to section 41 of your Lease Agreement, which will explain what fees you as the tenant will be liable to pay as a result.
What happen next?
Once your notice of intention to leave has been processed by the Property Manager, you will receive confirmation in writing of the vacate date and details of any outstanding rent or other unpaid accounts.
Access to Release the Property
As per the Lease Agreement, you are required to provide reasonable access to the property in order for the landlord to secure new tenants. Your Property Manager will contact you to discuss suitable times to do so.
The Final Inspection
Only once the property has been fully vacated, cleaned and grounds made ready with keys returned can we commence our final inspection. It is important to note that if a final inspection time has been made and you are aware that you will not be fully ready for the inspection, please call us as soon as possible to rearrange another time.
You are welcome to be present during the final inspection or simply to return ALL of the keys (plus any copies you made during the tenancy) to the office by close of business on the vacate date.
Getting Your Bond Back Quickly- Criteria
At the end of your tenancy you will no doubt want your bond refunded quickly after you vacate. For your full bond to be paid quickly, you will need to ensure the following:
a) Rent -any outstanding rent is paid promptly. Please note that it is against the tenancy legislation to withhold rent at the end of your tenancy with the intention for this to be deducted from the bond. Your rent must be paid in full, leaving your bond intact
b) Property Ready – the property is cleaned, carpets professionally cleaned and grounds returned to their ingoing condition. Please follow the final vacating guide below. The property must also pass the final inspection conducted by this agency.
c) Outstanding Accounts – please ensure that any monies outstanding like water, any damages, compensation amounts and break lease fees are paid.
d) Keys – ensure that all keys, remote controls etc have been returned.
Follow the checklist to maximise your Bond refund.
