you can only give your tenant a termination notice if they are over 14 days
behind in rent. (Other states Breach notice after 7 days and a notice to leave
after 14 days)
get the annoying tenants who consistently pay their rent late but never fall
over 14 days behind so you can’t send them a termination notice.
BUT there is a way around this.
You can apply
for a ‘Compliance Order’ through VCAT (Tribunal). This will allow you to skip
the process of sending a termination notice if they fall behind again.
the Compliance Order might say: The next time the tenant falls over 7 days behind
in rent, the landlord can skip sending a termination notice and apply straight
to the tribunal for a ‘Possession Order’ (to kick them out).
Keep in mind
when you apply, you’ll need to show:
- A clear ledger of all their payments showing they are consistently
behind in rent
- Evidence of the late notifications
- Documentation of your conversations
You can start
to see how everything comes together and it’s just a simple process.
