Vacating – Notice Required

Please give GEH as much notice as possible of the date you intend to vacate. The legal requirement is at least 21 days notice in writing. Failure to give the required notice will result in rent continuing to be charged after you vacate. You can provide written notice by filling in the form below.

Once GEH receive your notice to vacate, confirmation of your intention to vacate the residence will be sent to you in writing. The letter will provide information including your vacancy number, who you need to contact for the final inspection and information regarding cleaning.

Reminders When Moving Out

The Key Agent must complete a final inspection once the property has been cleaned and all furniture and belongings have been removed from the property.

Keys are to be returned to the designated Key Agent. Until your keys are returned, your rent will continue to be charged.

Remove all of your personal belongings. Goods left for more than 60 days in an unoccupied house are legally regarded as ‘Abandoned Goods’ and may be sold. Rent will continue to be charged to tenants whose personal belongings are still located on the premises.

Ensure the premises and gardens are presented for the final inspection in a clean and tidy condition in accordance with GEH Vacancy Requirements.

Ensure that final readings are taken for your services such as gas and electricity and contact your telecommunications supplier to cancel the phone/internet services. Contact Australia Post to have your mail redirected.
