    Default How much notice?

    So we have been living in our rental for 4 years now, and today we got notice that we would have to move out... I feel this is because they wouldn't fix stuff broken in the house and I had been emailing weekly asking about it ...

    We were meant to get a new rental agreement in February, but one never came. So I guess that means we currently have no agreement.

    We have been told we have to be out by 23/9/15 which is fine, but I want to get it over and done with and move immediately, however I emailed the agent and she said that we had to pay to that date even if we move out earlier...

    Is this correct? I was under the impression for no agreement you had to give two weeks notice??

    Can someone please advise me?? Tia

    As far as I was aware once there is no agreement it's a month by month contract and I would think then a months notice should be enough (possibly even less)

    I *think* in NSW at least that if you are on a month by month tenancy and you have been given notice to leave you can move out without penalty at any time before the date given in the notice.

    According to my BIL (property manager), yes this is correct. You are living month to month. So you have to pay the month's notice if you leave early, or pay up to that date if you stay and leave on time.

    They are most likely bluffing and relying on you taking their word for it.

    If you're in QLD call the RTA and they'll tell you straight up. They were awesome when I dealt with them in the past.
