“I have changed my address and it is now different to the one specified in my tenant’s tenancy agreement. Do I have to notify the tenant? Is it important that this is updated quickly, or can it wait?” Owner, NT

We asked Ray White Darwin Business Development Manager, Kate Nolan for her advice.

“This is not something that is urgent and can wait until your next agreement to be updated,” Kate said.

Have a question you would like to see answered here? Let us know!

“However, if it is something you are concerned about you can add a Memorandum of Variation (MOV) to the lease showing that the address has now changed and supply a copy of this document to your tenant.”

In most cases, a landlord would wait and update this on their next tenancy agreement, Kate said.
