Notice to vacate

To end your tenancy agreement, you must provide a written notice to us with required notice period. Depending on your situation, the notice period required may vary.

If you want to vacate at the end of the fixed term period, you need to give at least 14 days’ notice. The notice can be given up to and including the last day of the fixed term.

If you want to end your tenancy agreement after your lease have expired, and you have not signed another tenancy agreement, you need to provide at least 21 days’ notice. This notice can be given at any time and does not have to line up with the rent payment cycle.

If the landlord notifies you of their intention to sell the property during a fixed term tenancy agreement, you can end the tenancy agreement by giving at least 14 days’ notice with no penalties applied. However, this does not apply if the landlord had notified you of their intention to sell prior to the signing of the lease agreement.

If you need to vacate during your fixed term tenancy agreement, there are costs involved that you may be liable for such as a break fee. A break fee is a penalty you agree to pay if you move out before the end of the fixed term. If the fixed term of the agreement is for three years or less, the break fee is:

  • Six weeks rent if you move out in the first half of the fixed term
  • Four weeks rent if you move out in the second half of the fixed term

If your tenancy agreement does not include a break fee, you may be liable for loss of rent, advertising and letting fee.

Notify your property manager about the changes of your circumstance and provide as much as notice as possible. Please note you cannot find new tenants to take over your tenancy agreement without prior approval from the landlord. All prospective tenants must complete and submit a tenancy application with supporting documents to the landlord for approval.

You must pay rent up to and including the day your notice ends and you vacate and returning all keys to our office.
