“When is my tenant’s lease agreement (tenancy) considered terminated? (i.e. what conditions must be met to see this made official?)” Owner, NT

We asked Ray White Darwin Business Development ManagerKate Nolan for her advice.

“To officiate the end of a lease agreement, the tenant must have returned keys to you or your Property Manager and handed back possession,” Kate said.

“You can give a tenant notice to vacate at the end of their lease agreement and vice versa.”

“To do this, you will need to issue your tenant an RT05 notice, which you can obtain from the NTCAT website, however, vacant possession must still be obtained in order for this to be deemed the end of the tenancy.”
