Ending your Tenancy

Ending a Fixed Term Lease Agreement

If you are leaving at the end of your current fixed term lease, we require at least 14 days notice in writing via email or post or alternatively through the vacate form on our website. Please note that this amount of notice needs to commence when we have received your notice, not when it was posted.

Once we receive your notice of intention to vacate, your property manager will contact you to confirm and explain the process moving forward. You will be advised in writing of any rent owing up until your vacate date and any other outstanding invoices associated with your tenancy. Your Property Manager will also discuss suitable times to access to the property in order for us to secure a new tenant.

Ending a Non-Fixed Agreement (Periodic) 

If you are leaving at the end of your current fixed term lease, we require at least 21 days notice in writing via email or post or alternatively through the vacate form on our website. Please note that this amount of notice needs to commence when we have received your notice, not when it was posted.

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.

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

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:

1. 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

2. Cleaning

The property is cleaned and grounds returned to their ingoing condition. Please follow the final vacating guide for further details. The property must also pass the final inspection conducted by this agency.

3. Outstanding Accounts

Please ensure that any monies outstanding like water, any damages, compensation amounts and break lease fees are paid

4. Keys, Swipes & Remotes

Ensure that all keys, remote controls etc have been returned. Remotes & swipes must be in working order.
