The best place to start is to read the terms of the agreement carefully. If a tenant refuses to move after the lease expires, the landlord can ask the rental court for help. The court may make an order that returns possession of the premises to the owner. If the landlord suffers financially from the tenant`s refusal to move, the court may also order the tenant to pay compensation. You can write your own message or use Fair Trading`s termination model. If you leave without the appropriate notice period, it may be more difficult for you to find a new home, because if you have a mortgage on the property that was registered before your lease and the lender (normally a bank) has the right to own the property or sell the property, the lender can give you 28 days` notice. Termination must mean that it is because the landlord/agent has increased the rent for the fixed term. In most cases, you give the owner/broker a written termination and evacuate (“vacancy”) – undress and return the keys – depending on your termination. You can clear before the date of your notice, but continue to pay the rent until the end of the notice. Your landlord cannot evict you if they have received a notification from Council about a complaint you have filed with Council about living conditions on the property.. .
