vacate notice period

“Is there a set required vacate notice period in Queensland as some real estate agents say it is two months and some say 1 month?” – Tenant, QLD

We asked Director/Licensee and Head of Property Management at Homes4U, Mareea Wilkinson, for her advice.

Mareea said the time frame for a vacate in Queensland varies depending on the reason for the vacate.

“If a fixed-term agreement is in place, a tenant is required to give a minimum of two weeks’ notice before the end of that tenancy,” she said.

“If under the same fixed term agreement, an owner/agent wishes to give notice, that time frame is two months’ notice before the end of the tenancy in question.”

Mareea said in the case of a periodic agreement, a tenant needs to give a minimum of two weeks’ notice, and an owner/agent must provide a minimum of two months’ notice.

  1. Can you get evicted if a nasty neighbour has it in for you and get others neighbours to complain? What are my rights to find out what the complaints are even about?
