their excuses the day they fall over 14 days behind in rent is when you need to
give them a termination notice.
- You are giving them free rent and
- They’ll keep falling further and further behind
- You must follow through with what you have told them
- It will be harder to get this money back on insurance if you don’t
The best way
to send them a termination notice is doing it online through the tribunal’s
website (For Victoria) – VCAT Residential Tenancies Hub.
Other states send Paper "Notice to Leave”. See links below
Create your free VCAT account here. When you’ve
done that click on ‘Notices’.
will guide you through (unlike the paper form) and it will save you time if you
have to apply for tribunal later.
If you don’t
want to do it online you can find all the notices on RealRenta and the link to
the latest one’s for you.
You can hand
deliver the notice or send it via registered post or Email.
I prefer to hand
deliver the notice so the 14 days’ notice starts counting the next day.
If you do hand
deliver it make sure you get them to sign an extra copy that you keep so you
can prove it was handed on that day.
On the other hand,
if you decide to post it you need to allow extra days for postage. Australia
Post have recently increased their delivery times which means you need to allow
even more days for postage now:
