Vacating A Property

To ensure a smooth transition during the vacating process, we have taken the time to prepare the below important information to assist you.

GIVING NOTICE TO VACATE

Please ensure you have provided our office with the correct notice. Click Here to download the Notice of Intention to Leave form directly from the RTA website.

FORWARDING ADDRESS

When giving notice it is important that you provide our office with your forwarding address. If you are unsure of your new forwarding address, we suggest that you provide a temporary address.

PAYMENT OF RENT

It is important that you continue to pay rent until the date of vacant possession. You cannot utilise your bond to offset rental payments. Failure to pay rent will be recorded on your file, which could jeopardise your ability to secure a rental property in the future.

REDIRECTION OF MAIL

It is important not to forget to redirect your mail. You can obtain these forms from Australia Post.

DISCONNECTION OF UTILITIES

Ensure that you disconnect or transfer all utilities to the property, including the telephone, Internet, electricity and gas (if applicable).

PROPERTIES WITH POOLS

If your property has a pool, please contact our office to discuss the date that you will be disconnecting the electricity to enable our office to make arrangements (if necessary) to re-connect the electricity to ensure that the pool filter system continues to operate.

FINAL INSPECTION

Following vacant possession of the property, a member of our team will visit the property to carry out a final inspection to enable the bond to be refunded.

BOND REFUND

Once we have conducted the final inspection we will be in a position to finalise the bond. It is important that all tenants who signed the original bond lodgement form are present to sign the bond refund form. Failure to have all signatures present will result in bond delays.
