My old lease was up on the 7th of august.
Rent is due on the 15th of August.
Should I only have to pay arrears for that month?
And when I call up to get off the lease, does that happen straightaway as there's no valid contract for the time after the lease is up?

Are you wanting to move out? if not, just keep paying your normal weekly rent. If you do want to move out, you have to give 3 weeks written notice to move out. Hope that helps hun xo

I haven't been in rentals since 2006, but from memory I think you would calculate a daily rent rate (X per week x 52, divided by 365) and only pay as many days of that month that you are there.
And if it's a new lease being drawn up (should've already been done and signed) then you wouldn't be on the new lease. But if you're still in the property after the lease is expired then I can't remember what the go is there!

When did you give notice that you were leaving?
I believe that when a lease runs out then it reverts to a month by month lease, and you still need to give notice that you are leaving.
Is it a sharehouse situation? Because that might be different.

I spoke to the agent ages ago and said I'd pay out this lease but not after. We got no notice at the end of it so as far as I know, I'm still on it but going to sort it out tomorrow.
It's been up for 8 days so I am prepared to pay those 8 days rent but since we got no notice don't think I have to give any notice either? Especially since I told her 2 months ago that I'd only be paying until the end of the (then) current lease.
ETA: I left 3 months ago but because it was a sharehouse, continued paying my rent as I didn't want to leave my housemates in the lurch.

If your talking about your old rental then in theory you should have given two weeks notice to have your name taken off before the end of the lease and then they could organise to re sign your flat mates on a new lease - have you spoken to the agent about getting your name off ?

Our lease was up on the 3rd but we are still paying rent until we move (which will be in a month or so) and our lease continues week to week. We haven't received any letters.
I would write the real estate a letter. One thing I've learnt with real estates, ALWAYS have everything in writing.
Check you Tenancy Agreement as to what time period you have to give to vacate. I think ours says 21 days after our fixed term has expired. (We're in NSW)
P.S. Just read all the responses after I posed this - If in doubt ring your local Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service.
