Ending Your Tenancy

Ending Your Tenancy

When your fixed term lease agreement expires, your lease shall then continue as a periodic tenancy. This means that notification must be given in writing and it must be in accordance with the terms of the Residential Tenancies Act – ie. 28 Days Notice.

     
The Residential Tenancies Act, 1997 is explicit about how a tenancy ends, It can only occur when one of the parties to the Tenancy Agreement gives notice to the other party.

     
Notice to Vacate forms are available through our office or can be download from our website, and faxed, mailed or dropped into our office.

    §         Upon a satisfactory final inspection being completed, a Bond Claim form will be given to you to sign. All parties listed on the Bond Lodgement Form must sign and failure to do so will result in your bond not being returned by the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority
