We have a tenant who is breaking an 18 month lease about 9 months in because she's moving for work. She is liable to pay the rent until a new suitable tenant is found who pays the same amount each week. The thing is, she's paying top dollar and as we're heading into winter im not sure we'll find some one to pay the $365 she's paying so she might be footing the bill for a while. Would we be within our rights to go and do a few odd jobs, new blinds etc once she moves out but is still paying rent? Similarly, what if we kept advertising and actively looked for tenants, but decided to put it on the market. Would she still pay rent or would that be seem as interfering with the process of finding a tenant? It would be a great way to avoid having vacancies leading up to a sale, not that we're considering selling at this point. Interested to hear your thoughts.
