GIVING FORMAL NOTICE TO AGENT:
When the time comes that you need to vacate the property you are living in, we require you to give us a formal Notice to Vacate (28 days).
This must be signed by all parties on the lease agreement.
To use our office template, please download the below PDF document, print it out and fill in all details in full.
Once completed, please ensure you return the document to our office as soon as possible for processing.
This can be done by emailing your property manager or emailing: [email protected]
Important Note: After submitting your fully signed Notice to Vacate form to our office, you will receive confirmation from us by email.
Please contact us by phone within 24 hours if you have not had confirmation from your property manager.
At the end of any rental agreement, a renter is required to return the property to the owner in the same condition that they found it, minus any fair wear and tear.
Providing the renter meets this condition and all the rent is up to date, the renter will receive their BOND back in full.
DIRTY FANS AND FILTERS
As you prepare your vacate clean, don’t forget to ensure all fans and filters in bathrooms, toilets, kitchens are cleaned.
OVENS AND STOVETOPS
Both ovens and stovetops likely will need extra attention before you vacate the rental property. Take the time to clean both thoroughly.
Missing or non working bulbs are one of the most common reasons a renter might have a small amount deducted from their bond. Again it comes down to leaving the property in the condition that you were giving it, SO prior to departure, turn on the lights and ensure that all lightbulbs that were working when you commenced your tenancy are working when you leave.
FLYWIRES AND WINDOWS
Windows need to be clean and insect screens (fly screens) should be in working order and free from dust, holes and rips.
If the fly screens have suffered damage due to a pet during your tenancy or perhaps they have come free from the window frame, please fix this before you leave.
WALL MARKS AND HOOK HOLES
As part of the vacate, all walls should be wiped over and cleaned to remove any scuff marks or dirt and dust. Same with skirting boards and interior cupboards shelves.
We suggest you go room from room and clean all walls, cupboards and skirtings as you go prior to leaving the property.
If you have used temporary adhesive hooks on the walls, these will need to be removed along with their adhesive.
When removing these, please do so carefully so you don’t damage the wall or door they are fixed to. Adhesive residue can be removed with eucalyptus oil, which can be then wiped off.
If your property includes a garden, this too will need to be returned in a similar state to which you were given it.
This includes filling in any garden holes that were made by pets and removing all garden rubbish.
