14-day Notice of Intention to Vacate for landlord's failure to comply with a compliance order

< Back to list

If the Tribunal has granted you a compliance or compensation order because your landlord either breached a duty under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 or your tenancy agreement, and your landlord fails to comply with that order, you can give them a 14-day Notice of Intention to Vacate.

You can apply for a compliance or compensation order if you have given your landlord a Breach of Duty notice and they have not complied with it within 14 days.

You can also apply for a compensation order where your landlord has breached the tenancy agreement and as a result you have suffered a loss or you have paid the landlord more money than you have to. (See ‘Breach of Duty Notices’ for more information.)

14-day Notice of Intention to Vacate for successive breaches

You can also give your landlord a 14-day Notice of Intention to Vacate at any time during a fixed-term tenancy for repeatedly breaching any of their duties under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 if:

  • they have breached the same duty twice before, and
  • you have given them a Breach of Duty Notice on both previous occasions, and
  • they fixed the breach or paid you compensation on both previous occasions
