I am in QLD and I have been fortunate enough to purchase a house. However, my rent agreement where I still am expires in May and I am moving into my new house at the beginning of February.
I have done the right thing with the real estate agent where I am living and have given him 55 days notice.
Now apparently his attitude changed on the phone, I have to pay $200 in advertising fees, a weeks extra rent + gst and if they can't find anyone, I still have to continue to pay rent up until my contract ends.
I am an honest person and I am trying to work with them but at the same time reduce my cost. It seems like they just want to take my money regardless.
I have a bond and iv always paid on time and I am actually a weeks rent in advance all the time. I am what you would call a great tenant.
I have been there for over 2 years now.
