The end of a tenancy can cause uncertainty and stress for landlords and tenants. myRent provides the resources and information to make this process as seamless as possible.

myRent makes ending a tenancy easy

Ending a tenancy can cause uncertainty for both tenant and landlord. For tenants, moving home is always stressful, even without the doubts of the legal process and bond returns. As a landlord, you want security and certainty regarding the condition of your property. Plus, you're dealing with the stress of searching for new tenants and filling vacancies.

myRent streamlines this process and eases the stress by guiding you through every step and providing all the documents and resources you'll need.

How does it work?

This starts by giving notice correctly. Whether the tenancy is periodic or coming to the end of the fixed term, it is important that the landlord and tenant follow the correct notice period and give notice in the correct way. With myRent you can rest assured that the correct notice is given, and the right process is followed.

On the day of moving out, you can use our property inspection report to conduct your final inspection. This report, as well as the inspections conducted during the tenancy, will allow you to compare the condition of the property at the beginning and end of the tenancy. This is the fairest way for the landlord and tenant to determine if and why any damage has occurred. It also will be helpful for resolving any claims over the bond.

Need assistance with Property Inspections? myRent is here to help! Book a one-off professional inspection service (no strings attached!) or outsource all your property inspections.

Returning a bond is made easy. Just head to your myRent dashboard and download the bond return form. Fill out your details, sign it and submit it to Tenancy Services.
