Early Termination on a Prescribed Extraordinary Ground

< Back to list

You can give the landlord a 14-day termination notice before the end of a fixed-term agreement on any of the following grounds:

  • you have been offered and accepted a place in social housing
  • you have accepted a place in an aged-care facility or you need care in an aged-care facility
  • the landlord wants to sell the premises and did not tell you this before entering into the tenancy agreement
  • a co-tenant or occupant or former co-tenant or occupant has been excluded from the premises by a final apprehended violence order.

You do not have to pay the landlord compensation or other additional amount for ending the agreement early.
