Ending a tenancy

Things you should know about when a tenancy ends.

What do you need to think about when a tenancy comes to an end? One of our houses learns about how far ahead tenants and landlord need to give notice, and how to get their bond back.

If you want to end a periodic tenancy, you must give the correct notice.

What you need to know if a tenant or landlord changes, or if the house is sold.

A fixed-term tenancy only lasts for the set amount of time stated on the tenancy agreement, but can be renewed or extended if the landlord and tenant agree.

The landlord or tenant can’t give notice to end a fixed-term tenancy early. However, a few options are available if either party wants to end the fixed-term early.

When a tenancy’s coming to an end, both landlords and tenants can help things go smoothly before and on the final day of the tenancy. 

Sometimes a tenant moves out without giving the correct notice, or leaves goods behind. If this happens you need to know what you can do about it and what processes you need to follow.

Subletting is usually where the tenant moves out of the house they're renting and on-rents the house to someone else, such as for a residential tenancy or for a short term holiday purpose.
