Details of the expiry date can be found in the lease agreement. If this date passes, the lease becomes a ‘continuing agreement’. This ensures all parties are bound by the original lease terms.
A lease renewal can be requested from your property manager. The owner of the property has the right to renew the lease, let arrangements continue under the terms of the original lease, or issue the appropriate notice requesting that the property is vacated.
It is important to communicate whether or not you wish to continue living in the property with your property manager well before the expiry date of the lease. This allows everyone to make necessary plans and arrangements.
