    Quick question... Long story, but I have some problems with tenants now refusing to pay rent, and they are late, again, for the water usage charges at the property...

    Regarding rent, today they are now 8 days in arrears, and I have requested the agent issue a Notice to Remedy for this alone...

    Regarding water usage charges, they have not paid the invoiced amount within the 30 days, for the 4th consecutive time, and I want to issue a Notice to Remedy for this on it's own as a "General Breach"..

    My question, can there be multiple Notice to Remedy Breach's in place at any one time?

    You can send one breach notice covering each item or one covering several issues.

    My preference is for individuals... Rent arrears must be addressed within 7 days, while the Water Usage charges must be addressed within 14 days... I think individual Notices also make it clearer for the tenant what the issue is, and any continued breaches can be specific!

    Prefer separate ones. That way if they remedy one of the issues the other one is still in place and can be enforced if you wish.

    As an agent in Brisbane - yes there can be multiple breaches at one time for separate issues - absolutely.
