How do I end the tenancy – QLD & WA



In the Sunshine State, the appropriate form must be used to create the notice, which must be presented within a reasonable period of time.

The reason for termination must be indicated, along with the evacuation date.

If the tenant does not comply,the landlord must apply to the tribunal for a termination order and a warrant of possession within two weeks of the date of handover.

Upon approval, the tribunal will then send a notice regarding a hearing, as well as a copy of the landlord’s application, to the tenant.

Once the warrant of possession is issued, it must be carried out within three days of the termination date.

The authorities have 14 days to enter the property and enforce the warrant unless the tribunal indicates otherwise.

Western Australia

In the west, landlords must issue a formal notice to the tenant regarding a breach of the tenancy agreement.

The tenant then has 14 days to correct the breach. If they do not comply, this is when the termination notice should be served.

The tenant is given seven days after receiving the notice to leave the property.

If the tenant does not vacate within this time period,then the landlord should apply for an order of possession from the Magistrates’ Court within 30 days.

The subsequent course of action is to request a property seizure and delivery order.

A court-appointed bailiff will then be sent to evict the tenant on the landlord’s behalf.
