Whichever option chosen by a lessor, a tenant cannot be evicted from a property without a court order to terminate the contract, and under no circumstances does the law allow the landlord to confiscate a tenant`s property instead of being ow. If you violate your contract, you have broken one or more rules of your lease with the owner/agent. A rental agreement can be oral or written or a combination of the two. If you violate the agreement, the landlord must take certain steps before you can terminate your lease. If you have breached the agreement and are ready or able to repair the breach, you should do so within the specified time frame and/or inform the owner/agent that you intend to resolve the issue. Certain sections of the law may be amended by a “contracting clause” that is written in the written lease. The application to QCAT does not automatically mean that the contract is terminated. The tenant should continue to pay the rent until the official end of the contract.

The termination must be carried out in the correct shape; This may be one of three forms depending on the nature of the injury (see section below).

If you agree that you violated the agreement but are unable to resolve the issue within the specified time frame, write to the owner/agent and explain, if any, why. Other provisions of the act cannot be changed and may apply even if your lease contains another clause.

They are also included in the information brochure that landlords have to give to tenants at the beginning of the tenancy (leases regulation 1989, Regulation 14 and Calendar 2). The court judge`s hearing date must not be more than 21 days after the termination of Form 1B, as previously. You should not withhold rent to motivate the landlord to solve a problem, as this is a violation of the agreement by the tenant. The lease is not automatically terminated if a term or condition of the contract is broken. The two parties remain bound by the contract and you must continue to pay the rent and fulfill all your obligations until the contract is terminated.
