Notice in Writing
When you intend to vacate the property, in all instances we require your notice in writing or on a Form 13 (Notice of Intention to Leave). The notice can either be delivered to the office or emailed.
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 2 weeks’ notice in writing or on a Form 13. 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 you, 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 by email or completing a Form 13. Please refer to Clause 7 and Addendum A section 2 of your General Tenancy Agreement which will explain what fees you 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 General Tenancy Agreement, you are required to provide reasonable access to the property in order for the landlord to secure new tenants. Your Property Manager will issue an entry notice when entrance required.
The Final Inspection
Only once the property has been fully vacated, cleaned and grounds made ready with keys returned to the office we can commence our final inspection.
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 or 9.00am the following morning. Any later delay in return of all keys and remotes will incur rent.
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 for you 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 – available for download. The property must also pass the final inspection conducted by your Property Manager.
c) Outstanding Accounts – please ensure that any monies outstanding like water, any damages, electricity if applicable , compensation amounts and break lease fees are paid at the time of vacate.
d) Keys – ensure that all keys, remote controls etc have been returned.
Follow the checklist to maximise your Bond refund.
