Ending the Tenancy and Leaving the Property

Contact your Property Manager to discuss your legal requirements with regards to ending your tenancy, as written notice periods will be required.

Once the Property Manager has received/issued your ‘Notice of Intention to Vacate/Notice to Vacate’, they will contact you and advise requirements for handing over vacant possession.

Once vacant possession is established (that is, all keys have been returned) a bond/final inspection can be completed.

Please note: The bond will only be returned once it has been established that all rent is paid as required, the property has been returned in its original condition as per the entry condition report (excluding fair wear and tear) and all applicable invoices have been paid.

Please note: if you do not return the keys within the time frame we may change the locks to the property and you will be liable for the cost.

Breaking the lease

Your tenancy agreement is a legally binding contract and as such process needs to be followed to break any tenancy agreement. In the first instance, please contact your Property Manager to inform them of your intention.

They will forward you a 'break lease form' and details of your obligations. Please note, the office cannot begin to advertise your property for rent until the 'break lease' form has been executed and returned.

In accordance with the relevant Residential Tenancy Act, you will be required to pay all costs incurred as outlined in your break lease form.
