Breaking a lease is a severe step to take and ideally dispute resolution has been attempted before the decision to terminate is made. The right to terminate often depends on the type of breach, the severity of the breach and whether it has been remedied or not. It’s also important to consider local laws and guidelines when looking to terminate your lease. For example, the rules around breaking a lease in Melbourne where you previously lived may differ to those in Sydney where you live now.
A lease is a legal contract, like any other, so it is always recommended to seek professional legal advice before terminating. Wrongfully breaking a lease can be an overstep which could render a party to liability for damages or even permit the other party to end the lease prematurely.

What about evictions?
Eviction of a tenant is a far-reaching step. Evicting a tenant is only permitted strictly in accordance with the conditions of the applicable lease and even then, it is subject to applicable legislation and formalities. Tenant’s may also have an equitable right to relief from forfeiture and eviction in some circumstances.
