Yep - if your lease has expired you can just up and go - however as much as it would feel great to do that it sounds like you have nasty property managers so as much as it sucks - you want to get a good reference and your bond back with no stress so if it were me, once you find a new house give them 14 days "notice" ( like I said you don't legally need too) and just bite your tongue until they do the final inspection and you get your bond back - then open the gates of hell and write/call the licensee and head office if they are a franchise and put in a complaint about the property manager - then try track down the owners address and send the same letter - most owners really don't know how bad their pm are - or if you don't need a reference just do it now !

I'm not sure what state you live in, but I know in QLD you legally need to give 2 weeks notice to terminate a periodic lease. The owner has to give 2 months notice to terminate a periodic lease.
ETA I must be confused though Elijahs Mum....After a quick google I can't see any state where you can just up and go? To end a periodic lease seems to require tenants give between 14 and 28 days notice depending on the state?

I've decided that I'm not even going to fight it, as in all honesty we need a larger place anyhow.
What I WILL be doing however is writing a letter to the landlords to inform them of my dealings with the property manager. I couldn't track down their address, however they are currently renovating the unit next door themselves, so I will be slipping the letter under the door for them to find. I will be finding out who I can make a formal complaint to in regards to the property manager, and doing so once we have moved and received the bond back.

In nsw I was told even with my lease expiring I had to give notice 21 days that I wasn't going to renew

You beat me to it! In NSW you can just up and go if you are on a periodic lease
Getting notice from the landlord
If your landlord serves you with a termination notice you can move out any time before the notice ends without having to give your own notice

Oh I see, it's not only if your lease has expired but if you have been given notice by the landlord as well...I read your previous post as if your lease has expired your free to up and leave
