Applying for Orders for Performance
If the landlord is failing to perform an obligation under the agreement, you can apply for orders for performance.
For example: orders requiring the landlord to do repairs, or to stop coming onto the premises without your permission, or to lodge the bond.
You will need:
Evidence that the landlord has failed to observe a term of the agreement –for example:
- A copy of a letter you sent to the landlord advising of the need for repairs;
- A tradesperson’s report that the particular fixture or amenity requires repair or replacement; and
- A clear timeline of the sequence of events.
