Notice to Remedy Breach

A Notice to Remedy Breach (Form 11) is a form used during the tenancy to advise either the tenant or agent that they are in breach of one or more terms of their residential tenancy agreement.


Notices to Remedy Breaches are commonly issued to tenants for:

  • Rent Arrears
  • Lawn and Garden Maintenance
  • General up keep of property
  • Damage to property
  • Unauthorised pets on property
  • Unauthorised occupants residing at property


Coral Sea Property Services follows a strict process when issuing a Notice to Remedy Breach. Should we have to breach you at any stage, a paper form ‘Notice to Remedy Breach’ will be delivered to your letter-box. You will be given 7 days from receiving the breach to have it remedied. We expect that once you have remedied the breach, you contact our office and notify us. Once this has been done we will notify you in writing that you have remedied the breach.


If the breach has not been remedied within 7 days of receiving, you will be issued with a Notice to Leave (Form 12). Once the Notice to Leave has been issued, it can not be reversed, unless by negotiation with our office.


It is very important that tenants understand that a Notice to Remedy Breach and a Notice to Leave are serious documents and are a permanent mark to their file, which can later result in a ‘bad’ rental reference and if for rent arrears, can affect your credit rating.
