If you dispute the Notice to Remedy Breach
If you are given a Notice to Remedy Breach and you don’t agree with the notice, you can apply to the RTA Dispute Resolution Service for help to resolve the dispute.
You can also write or talk to the lessor, agent or provider, to let them know you dispute the notice and do not agree that you are in breach of your agreement.
If the RTA is unable to help you and the lessor, agent or provider, reach an agreement to resolve the dispute, they will issue a Notice of Unresolved Dispute. You can then apply to the Tribunal for a decision about the matter.
In most cases, you can only be given a Notice to Leave during a fixed term agreement if you fail to remedy a serious breach the agreement.
