I want to vacate my rental property

What happens if I want to end my tenancy early?

 

We can help.

 

Sometimes circumstances can change and you need to end your tenancy agreement early. However, it is important to understand your obligations.

When you break a lease, you are terminating a legally binding agreement between you and the owner of the property.

 

If you break your lease in the first half of your lease agreement there will be a penalty of six weeks rent.

If you break the lease in the second half of your tenancy there will be a penalty of four weeks rent.

If you have any further questions please contact your property manager for more information.

 


 

The Final Rental Payment

 

Once you have given notice to vacate, your Property Manager will contact you by the close of business and give you a final rental payment. It is best to stop your direct debit at this point and complete a one-off payment of the final amount.

 


 

The Final Clean

 

This is a vital part of the vacate process. Please do not underestimate a professional clean by experienced cleaners.

Please note that the property must be cleaned when you hand back the keys to your Property Manager prior to close of business on the last day of your tenancy.

Your Property Manager will make every effort to meet you at the property on the day you vacate to ensure it is a smooth process. If all work is complete, the bond can be released on the same day.

Kitchen cupboards – Inside and outside of cupboards.

Oven – Inside & outside of oven.

Dishwasher – Please ensure the dishwasher is wiped clean on the inside and outside and the filter is clear of debris and food.

Providers

 


 

Phone, Gas, Electricity, TV, Internet. We recommend cancelling or transferring plans for the property or transferring to your new address. You may need to call your provider two weeks prior to closing the account. We recommend that all tenants secure a provider prior to moving in to avoid any delays with services.

 

Redirect Your Personal Mail

 


 

We recommend that you contact your local post office and arrange a re-direct. This will avoid any confusion with the mail or the tenant receiving private information.
