Vacating Guide

Breaking Your Lease

Should you, the tenant, request to terminate your lease agreement early you must notify Ray White Maroochydore in writing as soon as possible. You will need to complete an Agreement to Terminate Fix Term Tenancy FormPlease note: This form is just an example, if you are planning to vacate please notify your relationship manager ASAP and they will provide you with a completed form to fill in. This will then be forwarded onto the owner for approval.

You will be responsible for paying the following fees when terminating your lease early:

– Letting Fee (One weeks rent + GST), Advertising Fees – $199, Rental payments up until the day before a new tenancy commences.

Should you wish to end your tenancy upon completion of your lease term, you may do so by providing a completed Form 13- Notice of Intention to Leave to Ray White Maroochydore, giving 14 days notice prior to the End Date of your Tenancy Agreement. You will then receive a vacate information pack from your Relationship Manager. Please contact your Relationship Manager to obtain a Notice to Leave Form.

Please refer to your Tenancy Agreement for full details regarding your vacate responsibilities that you must ensure are completed.

ALL KEYS (including any copies made) are to be returned to Ray White Maroochydore to finalise your vacate. You are responsible for rental payments up until a new applicant takes over your lease. Your property manager  will keep in touch with you regarding the approval of a new tenant and the finalisation of your lease.

A vacate inspection will be conducted upon the finalisation of your tenancy. Providing the property has been left in satisfactory condition, all outstanding monies paid and owner approval,  your bond will then be refunded to you promptly, less any deductions discussed.

Ensuring a Hassle Free Vacate

As you would expect to enter a new property with a high cleaning standard, we too expect the property to be left with that same high standard, obviously taking into consideration the entry condition report.

At the time of vacating you will be required to complete an Exit Condition Report that will be compared with the entry condition report. Our office will provide this to you in due course.

More often than not tenants are required to return to the property after vacating to attend to outstanding cleaning items. This inconvenience wastes valuable time for both Ray White Maroochydore and the tenant, and unnecessarily delays them receiving their bond refund.

We strongly suggest employing professional cleaners who can complete the work, that would normally take days, in just hours. So those extra days spent on rent to clean could go towards a cleaner; saving tenants both time and energy that could be put into getting settled at their new home!

To ensure you receive a full bond refund, we also recommend using the below checklist when vacating your property:
