Rent Not Inline with Lease Requirements

 

 

Jake, Our rent collector

Zero Tolerance

 

 Coral Sea Property has a zero tolerance policy on non payment of rent. Your lease requires that you remain a minimum of 7 days in advance with your rent at all times & as you were advised during your initial sign-up, this condition will be strictly enforced.

 

A Grade tenant

 

Coral Sea Property seek out A grade tenants for our properties, to see the benefits of being an  A grade tenant click here. As an A grade Coral Sea Property tenant you have a responsibility to ensure your rent is kept within your lease requirements.

 

If your rent is not kept within your lease requirements YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE PROPERTY.

 

No Apology

 

If the procedure below causes offence or you do not intend to keep your rent in line with your lease requirements you will find your time with us very uncomfortable. You are best to choose another agency for your accommodation needs.

  • Q – What if I breach the agreement more than twice?
  • A – If you breach the agreement, the lessor/agent can give you a Notice to Remedy Breach (Form 11) giving you 7 days to fix the problem.
  • If you fix the problem within the time allowed, the tenancy agreement will continue. But if you breach the agreement in the same way more than twice in a 1 year period, on the third (or more) time the lessor/agent can apply directly to the Tribunal to end the tenancy.

 

If you breach the tenancy agreement and are given a Notice to Leave (Form 12), you may still be responsible for paying the rent until another tenant can be found to occupy the premises or until the tenancy ends. The Tribunal might also make an order for you to pay compensation.
