Giving Notice to Vacate

If you are approaching the end of a fixed-term tenancy, you are required to provide our office with 30 days’ notice in writing of your intention to vacate.

If you are approaching the end of a periodic tenancy, you are required to provide our office with 21 days’ notice in writing of your intention to vacate.

Please download the Notice of Termination form below and lodge as per the instructions provided.

Once the form has been submitted, your Property Manager will acknowledge receipt of the notice and will forward a letter confirming your vacate date, along with a final bond inspection cleaning guide.

Breaking Your Lease

At St Ives Realty, we understand that circumstances may change and our tenants may be forced to break their lease.

Should you wish to break your tenancy agreement, you will be liable to pay rent until the property is re-let or until the expiry of your lease agreement (whichever occurs first). You will also be liable for any expenses incurred by the owner as a result of the broken lease.

A formal break lease document itemising all expenses will be provided and must be signed by the tenant. St Ives Realty will not contact the owner or commence searching for a new tenant until that document has been signed. We will do our best to minimise costs. Please discuss this with your Property Manager.

To start the lease termination process, please download the Notice of Termination form below and ensure it is signed by all of the property’s tenants. Once received, we will be in touch to discuss your lease break document and next steps.
