Breaking a lease in Queensland

If you wish to end a fixed term agreement before the end date without grounds (i.e. without sufficient reason) you are breaking the agreement, also known as breaking the lease.

A tenancy agreement is a legally binding agreement. If it is broken, compensation will need to be paid. When considering breaking your lease you should note the following:

1) You will be required to pay a break of lease fee, this equates to 1 week of rent plus GST payable within 7 days of receipt.

2) All obligations under the terms of your lease continue, for example:

a. You MUST continue to pay rent and remain in advance until a new tenant is found
b. YOU MUST continue to keep the property neat and tidy inside and out
c. For clarity, you remain completely responsible for the property until a new tenant is found and will be required to have the property cleaned upon vacating, as per your lease.

3. We will need to be able hold inspections for prospective tenants, advertise it online and may also need to place a “For Rent” sign at the front of the property.
