    Default Real estate/vacating question

    In this day and age is an email considered an acceptable form of written notice when vacating?
    Does anyone know?

    I thought in NSW anyway is supposed to be by hand, fax or post - unless your agent agrees to accept email - we don't only as we require the tenants signatures- id check with your agent first just in case but I would definitely follow up an email with a phone call confirmation as you want to make sure the right person received it

    Ah crap! I might just send in a letter and an email to cover all bases. Letters are just such a PITA... got to go out and buy an envelope and stamp... no guarantee it will even reach its destination.... oh the effort involved..lol

    @Elijahsmum what period of notice do you need to give in NSW? The new real estate said it was 2 weeks, then i read on a fact sheet it was 3 weeks if on a periodic agreement, and now i've just read 2 weeks again. So confused! Can you clear this one up for me?

    14 days before your lease has expired or 21 days after - when does yours expire?

    Expired about a month and half ago so 21 days notice it is, i guess.
