HOW TO GIVE NOTICE TO LEAVE A RENTAL PROPERTY
We always ask that if you are on a fixed-term lease you give the maximum amount of notice possible so we can schedule your final inspection date and time and give the landlord plenty of time to re-let the property.
The notice of intention to leave required for a non-fixed term (periodical) lease is 14 days’ notice in writing, this can be in a detailed email or using the approved form 13 available from the RTA website.
Breaking your lease
If you are on a fixed term lease agreement and need to vacate the property before the expiry of the lease, you must notify your property manager in writing as soon as possible advising of your intending vacating date. We will then be in contact with you to discuss the advertising and times available to show prospective new tenants through the property.
As per your lease agreement you will be responsible for the following:
- Compensation of lost rent until a new lease is signed or your current lease expires – whichever comes first.
- Once the property is vacant, you will be responsible to pay advertising subject to the Residential Tenancies Act
- Compensation of any additional expenses incurred
- Ongoing maintenance of the property and gardens (if specified in your lease agreement) until the new tenant’s lease commences
Please be assured that we will do everything we can to find a suitable tenant as quickly as possible to help minimise your cost, but please note we require a vacating date in order to begin the re-letting process.
