Breaking Fixed Term Lease

In accordance with Section 66 of the Residential Tenancy Act 1986 fixed term tenancies are a legal agreement between both parties, for a specific length of time and cannot simply be ended with notice.

You may be able to break or end your lease early if a suitable replacement tenant can be found to take over your lease (that satisfies Click tenant criteria). By filling in the form below you agree to pay the relevant break lease fees (as outlined below). 

Please note: there is no guarantee you will be able to break lease.

Before we do anything you need to complete the form below which confirms your request to break lease and pay fees involved. 

You must also advise the reasons for breaking lease, authorise Click to undertake viewings and agree to pay break lease lease fees in full before this process can commence.

The cost to break lease is $230 plus gst for advertising and 1 weeks rent plus gst administration fee. The fee of $120 plus gst is for a single person (ie. replacement of one tenant in a student flat). The tenant is also legally liable to pay the rent until the day prior to a new tenant moving in (and may also be required to vacate a few days this date to enable the house to be checked between tenancies) or to the end of the lease if a suitable replacement tenant cannot be found. There is no guarantee the tenant will be able to break lease.

Please indicate how you will be paying these funds by:

Once full funds are received we will list the property for rent and endeavour to find suitable replacement tenant. We will also advise you but you may also be liable for other costs, ie. smoke alarm check and potential meth tests - as per your landlords requirements.
