Notice to Vacate
There are generally two types of leases:
A breakdown of your options when vacating:
- Fixed term - a fixed-term agreement is for a set of period of time, usually six or 12 months. After a fixed-term lease expires, a tenant can sign a new fixederm lease or roll automtically onto a perodic lease.
- Periodic lease - a tenant will usually roll over to a periodic lease when their fixed-term lease ends. In a periodic lease, the tenant does not sign a new agreement, but must still follow the rules set out in the original lease.
AT THE END of the Fixed Term
If you want to end your tenancy when the fixed term period of the agreement is due to run out, you will need to give at least 14 day's notice. This notice must be in writing or email an can be given up to and inclouding the last da of the fixed term.
AFTER the Fixed Term (Periodic Lease)
If you want to end your tenancy after the fixed term has ended (and you have not signed another agreement), you will need to give at least 21 days' notice. This notice can be given at any time and does not have to line up with rent payment cycle. You must pay the rent up to and including the day your notice ends and you vacate.
Vacating the Premises
On receipt of your written notice to vacate, we will endeavour to organise an appointment for the final inspection with you, wherever possible. If this is not possible, a final inspection will be carried out within two (2) working days of you returning your keys of the property to our office.
You will be required to provide us with your account details for the refund of your Bond. To ensure this goes as smoothly as possible, provide us with your account details at the same time you hand in your keys and vacate.
