If a tenant wishes to leave the premises before the expiration of a limited time, it is always worth discussing this with the landlord, as it may end with an agreement between the parties. To justify the termination, the tenant`s behavior must be original or permissive: Housing SA checks the leases to determine whether another lease should be offered to the tenant and the duration of the lease. Tenants are offered a 5-year lease if they are either: Rental contracts end in accordance with the end of a public housing rental policy. In accordance with Article 85(3), even if it is satisfied that the lease has ended effectively, the court may reinstate the lease if it is satisfied that it is fair and cheap. The tenant or landlord must tell the other person if the rental agreement ends and will not be renewed at least 28 days before the end date. Written notification is required – termination by the lessor (245.4 KB PDF) – Notification by the tenant (246.4 KB PDF). If no one is modest, the contract is maintained as a periodic lease. If a lessor has committed a serious breach of the rental agreement, a tenant may apply for termination of the rental agreement [see 88]. The provision of section 88 is appropriate even in the case of an offence that cannot be corrected. The parties are generally free to say what the terms of their agreement will be. However, certain conditions are required of an agreement under the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA) and, even if they are not explicitly included in the agreement, they are incorporated into any agreement under the legislation. Applications for an injunction from the Tribunal may be filed either in person, by mail or online on the SACAT website. .
