If your rent is late - Repeated breaches

< Back to list

The lessor or provider can apply to the Tribunal to end your agreement if you breach the agreement in a similar way three times in a 12 month period.

This applies if you were given a Notice to Remedy Breach on two occasions, and each time you remedied the breach by the due date. If your rent is late for a third time within the 12 month period, the lessor or provider can apply to the Tribunal for an urgent hearing to terminate the agreement for “repeated breaches”. They can do this without issuing you with a third Notice to Remedy Breach.

If you receive notice of a Tribunal hearing, it is important to attend the hearing so you can put forward your side of the story. For more information, see the Resolving Tenancy Disputes Tenancy Facts.
