Request for a Tenant to Give Extra Notice….
We have been asked a number of times by landlords if we can write into the Tenancy Agreement for the tenant to give extra notice (i.e. 1-2 months) if they want to vacate the property, to allow additional time to secure a new tenant and alleviate the possibility of a vacant property.
This is against the law to contract outside of the Act, and requesting greater notice periods can attract harsh penalty fines. Tenants looking for future rentals often make the decision a couple of weeks before moving, not months.
