You will have signed your tenancy agreement for a term of six or twelve months. This means that you are fixed into this tenancy for that term. If you want to bring the tenancy to an end before this time then you have to request from one of our agents if you can be released earlier.
We will contact you three to four months before the end of the tenancy and ask what your future tenancy wishes are. If you want to continue with the tenancy then the tenancy may be extended from the end of the fixed term period onto a periodic tenancy. This means that it may continue onto a two month rolling tenancy where you can give two months’ notice (this has to begin and end on a rent day) to bring the tenancy to an end. The landlord also has the right to give notice during a periodic tenancy.
!Please note that all notices need to be in writing and delivered to our offices. We cannot accept notice verbally. If you have any queries about your tenancy or how to give notice then please feel free to contact us.
Visits are carried out quarterly and you do not have to be present unless you wish to be. During these visits we check that the property and garden (if applicable) is being maintained in accordance with the agreement. Information regarding the condition of the property is then passed onto the Landlord.
If there are any repair or maintenance issues during your tenancy you should contact the office as soon as possible because any repairs have to be agreed with the Landlord before works can commence. Once the Landlord has agreed we will arrange access to the property with you.
On the day you move in, all tenants and guarantors are required to attend our offices at a pre-arranged time. Each person will need to bring photographic ID, two utility bills from your previous address and proof of your right to live and work in Australia(if you do not have the correct ID this could delay you moving in). You will then have the opportunity to read through your agreements, the inventory and any other paperwork before signing all the documents and receiving your keys. Once you have signed the tenancy agreement you are contractually committed for the full term agreed.
