Ending a rental

Last updated: 29 Mar 2021

When does a residential rental end?

A residential rental may end when the:

  • renter moves out (vacates premises);
  • residential rental provider makes application, the Tribunal issues a possession order and the renter vacates the premises;
  • residential rental provider obtains a possession order and purchases a warrant which results in the renter/resident being removed from the premises.

In essence, therefore, a residential rental does not end until a renter has moved or is moved from, the premises.
