Disputes about notices

< Back to list

If you issue a Notice to Remedy Breach, Notice of Intention of Leave, or Resident Leaving Form, the lessor, agent or provider may dispute your notice. If they disagree with your notice they can apply to the RTA Dispute Resolution Service for conciliation to resolve the dispute.

In residential tenancies, it can be risky for tenants to end a fixed term agreement early without a Tribunal order, as the lessor or agent may dispute your reason for leaving. After you move out the lessor or agent may dispute the refund of your bond and claim compensation from you for breaking the agreement early.

If you want to end a fixed term agreement early because the lessor, agent or provider has failed to remedy a breach of the agreement, make sure you have copies of the notices you have given, and evidence about the seriousness of the breach. This is important if there is a dispute about your notices.
