There is a process to consider when your tenant provides you with a notice to vacate

Source:

Should your tenant give notice to vacate, we ensure that the required notice to vacate is given. We also ask them their reason for vacating. Upon notice being received we will contact you to advise of the tenant’s vacate date and to seek your ongoing instructions.

During this conversation we will offer you an opinion about a rent review, discuss a minimum lease term tailored to meet market conditions and outline our marketing program. We also advise you of the reason the tenant is vacating. In some instances we may be able to prevent a vacancy should the tenant be vacating due to a property specific reason that they had not previously reported.

Upon confirming your instructions and tenancy terms, we immediately commence promotion of the property. This will include promotion on our own website and on leading property renting web sites, For Rent signs, and advising prospective tenants on our database that your property is coming on to the market and to advise of inspection times.

At this time, we provide the vacating tenant with a vacating checklist to assist them with how to present the property when open for inspection and the manner in which the property is to be presented upon vacating in order to reduce the likelihood of bond deductions and to ensure that your property is left at the best standard.

During the marketing period we will be in contact with you on a regular basis to advise you of feedback from prospective tenants and to make recommendations that may make the property more attractive.

Our aim is to commit a new tenant before the current tenant vacates.
