The lease break penalties outlined above still apply. Any agreed handovers must be done correctly and legally. The existing tenant and proposed tenant should contact the property manager as soon as possible and advise them of their intentions. There is no automatic obligation to agree to this request. The proposed tenant must complete an application form, provide references and carry out all the other steps that are necessary for anyone to be approved as a tenant.

If the application is approved, the new tenant should not move into the property until a final inspection has been carried out and the necessary arrangements are made with your property manager for the release of your bond.
