Moving into your Brisbane Rental Property

Step 1. See our Tips for Moving House page.

Step 2. Please make an appointment to collect your keys, this cannot occur prior to the commencement date of your lease or before your bond and two weeks rent in advance are paid.

Step 3. Make sure you complete your entry condition report and return it to us within three business days from the date your lease commeces, refer to our section on How to Get Your Bond Back for what to do during your tenancy to ensure a smooth transition when you choose to vacate.

When you are ready to Move out.

Step 1. You are responsible for payment of rent up until the date your lease expires, by law in Queensland you must give us at least 14 days notice of your intention to vacate, using the correct Form which you can download from the Residential Tenancy Authority website or contact our office.  Please try to give as much notice as possible to allow to reduce the amount of time the property is vacant after you leave.  Do not stop paying rent for the last month as this is not what your bond is for, if you do so you may be breaching the law.  You may also find the matter will in end up in court if there are deductions for extra cleaning or repairs for damage.

Step 2. Rent is payable up until such time as all keys for the property have been returned to us, this includes copies you have made during your tenancy. Please also give us a copy of your exit condition report and supply your forwarding address.

Step 3. We will conduct a Final inspection within 48 hours after the keys have been returned to us, you are most welcome to attend.  We will contact you if there is any extra cleaning or repairs required, please note if you do not respond to us or cannot attend to the matter within 3 business days we will carry out the work and deduct the costs from your bond.

If You need to break your Lease.

If you need to break your lease, please let us know immediately, that way we can begin advertising the property for rent and hopefully find a new tenant promptly, which will reduce the cost to you.  The lease you have signed is a legal document designed to protect both the Landlord and the Tenant. You are bound by the lease to pay rent up until such time as the lease expires, or a new tenant is found.

Costs associated with breaking your lease include: rent up until the new tenant takes possession or the lease expires whichever is the sooner, the cost of advertising the property, and the letting fee.

The reason advertising and the letting fee are charged to you is because you are breaking your lease, and this means the Landlord would otherwise incur these costs which not have arisen if the lease was not broken.
