Should a tenant have the need to break a lease prior to its expiration the Residential Tenancies Act allows for the landlord to claim any costs fairly incurred for the releasing of the property to be charged to the tenant in full. Some of these costs include final bond inspection, Property Condition report update, advertising and the reimbursement of the unexpired portion of the leasing fee first paid by the landlord. Rent is also payable up to and including the day prior to a new lease commencing. The landlord does not have to accept the first application made on the property either, however in saying that that the Act requires the landlord or their agent to be seen to be using their best endeavours to minimise the tenants costs.
