Notice to Vacate Vic Form

Third, notice may be given electronically, such as by email, if you have consented to receive communications in this way. If you have received an e-eviction request and have not consented to it, review your rental agreement and contact us for further advice. If a termination does not meet all of these requirements, it will not be valid. If you have any doubts about the validity of your termination, you should seek advice as soon as possible. You can contest a 60-day notice period, other than a notice from a mortgagee or a notice of termination of a fixed-term contract, if you believe it is invalid, even if it is “without effect” [section 91 CCS]. If you decide to leave early and notify the landlord of your intention to terminate your contract with a pre-termination date, you may be liable for the early termination of your lease. You can try to negotiate an agreement with them or their agent, but make sure it is written and signed by you and your landlord or agent. This also applies if you wish to leave before the expiry of the full-time contract. A notice period of 28 days may be granted if a tenant has kept a pet after the Civil and Administrative Court of Victoria (VCAT) has ordered its removal [section 91ZZG]. An eviction notice is a written request from the landlord that you leave your rented apartment.

In some cases, you may dispute the termination and not be forced to leave. A notice period of 60 days – if you have a lease of less than 6 months – or a notice period of 90 days – if you have a lease of 6 months or more – may be granted to adjust at the end of your lease if it is a fixed term [Articles 91ZZD and 91ZZDA]. It`s important to note that because you receive notice of termination, it doesn`t necessarily mean you have to move. If the landlord wishes to evict you, they must first contact the Civil and Administrative Court of Victoria (VCAT) and convince VCAT that they should receive an order of possession. If the notice of eviction was issued by a mortgagee, you should attend the hearing on VCAT`s order to take possession. At the hearing, VCAT will ensure that the termination is valid. If this is the case and a warrant of possession is issued, you can ask VCAT to extend the deadline before the mortgagee can purchase a warrant for the police to evict you. VCAT can allow up to a maximum of 30 days before a mandate can be purchased. Eviction notices “have no effect in certain circumstances” [§ 91ZZI]. If you have a fixed-term contract, you may be asked to leave early if the landlord gives you a valid notice period and VCAT has given them a possession order. A landlord can also give 14 days` notice if the property was their principal residence immediately before the lease began, but only if: A mortgagee can give 60 days` notice if they have a mortgage (mortgage) on the property, if the mortgage was taken out before the start of the lease, and if they are entitled to own the property – for example, the owner defaulted on his loan [§ 91ZZK].

A social housing landlord may give 90 days` notice if the tenant no longer meets the eligibility criteria for social housing [§ 91ZZE]. If the landlord wants you to leave the property, they must give you a valid notice of termination and can give you various reasons. The length of the notice period depends on why the landlord is terminating and whether you have a fixed-term lease. If the termination took place at the end of your fixed-term contract and you wish to contest it, you must contact VCAT within the following deadlines: All 60-day terminations must include written proof from the owner to prove that the reason for termination is legitimate [§ 91ZZO]. If you are forced to leave the rental property because of an eviction application from the mortgagee, you may be able to claim compensation from your landlord. Get advice on these questions. The termination must be the full legal minimum notice period for the eviction, plus the time it took to reach you, plus an additional day, which is the termination date. An eviction notice cannot be left in your mailbox or under your door. It must be given to you in one of three ways.

You can contest the eviction notice at a hearing on VCAT`s order to take possession. If you wish to ask VCAT to contest the notice before a hearing on an order of possession, you must do so within 30 days of receiving the notice of eviction. The termination date must be on or after the end date of your lease. The landlord cannot ask you to leave before your temporary lease expires. VCAT must order the dismissal to be null and void if it is satisfied that you have been or are being subjected to domestic or personal violence and that the act or violation for which the notice was given was caused by the perpetrator. Secondly, it can be sent by registered mail, in which case the notice period must include an additional period for it to reach you by post. It`s also a good idea to keep the envelope and tracking number, as this can be useful proof to show when the notification was displayed. If you receive a notification that you have saved mail for post office collection, don`t ignore it. If you do not pick up your registered mail and the matter is forwarded to VCAT, the court may assume that the notice was lawfully “served” on you. A 60-day notice period (other than a 60-day notice period by a mortgagee) can only be granted if there is no fixed-term lease or if the termination date is at termination – the date you were asked to move – is on or after the end date of your fixed-term contract. If the tenant lives in social housing, a 14-day notice period may be granted in addition to the above if he: If you have been given notice for an act or violation caused by someone who exposed you to domestic or personal violence, you may contact VCAT to dispute this [Section 91ZZU].

If you have a regular lease, such as monthly, and you receive a notice of termination from the landlord, you can give them a 14-day intention to cancel in certain circumstances. If the landlord gives an eviction notice for the demolition, use or sale of the property and these things do not happen, he cannot re-rent the property for 6 months unless he has a VCAT permit [§ 91ZZH]. A 60-day notice period may be given to a tenant of a public residential property if the property is necessary for public purposes. Written proof is required [Section 91ZZC] However, they cannot give you notice if they have given the landlord permission to enter into a lease with you. This permission may be express – specified in the agreement – or implied. This means that even if no express authorization was given, it can be implied if the mortgagee knew about the lease and let it proceed without objection. A 60-day notice period may also be granted if the property is to be: If you wish to appeal to the VCAT before a hearing on an order of possession, you must apply within 30 days of receiving the eviction notice.
