A fixed term tenancy is what it says, a fixed term. They can be difficult to end, but sometimes can be ended by mutual agreement by both parties. Many owners do not want to agree to break this agreement as have signed you up so they have it fixed on their side too. The agreement cannot be ended by giving notice.
You can apply to break your fixed lease early; this often involves keeping your contract valid until a new approved tenancy is in place. Manage My House will do what it can to assist facilitating this but there is no guarantee that you will be able to break your lease.
The cost to break a lease is approximately $1350 + GST . You will be emailed an approximate breakdown of expected charges once we know you want to Break Lease. We cannot invoice the full amount until we know the costs involved as this process has many variables. You will initially be invoiced a non refundable deposit of $600+ GST to cover advertising and other initial administrative jobs. A breakdown of these fees are available and will be emailed. The additional charges will be invoiced once it is known the time and costs taken for administration, viewings, advertising etc.
Please make an appointment with your property manager to come to the office to go through the Break Lease process – contact us.
Please advise me in an email (click here) with at least 28 working days notice that you are ending your Periodic Agreement. If received after 4pm this will count as the next working day.
I will then be in contact to organise viewings to find new tenants.
It is a good idea to put a read receipt on the email and call me you have not had acknowledgement within 4 hours of the business day.
