Hi all In NSW a landlord must give the tenant a minimum of 30 days notice of intention not to renew the lease past the current fixed term lease. Reference - Ending a tenancy However I am unsure how to interpret this - If a fixed lease for 12 months was signed on 1 August 2019 (and therefore expires 1 August 2020), is it possible to give the tenant notice on 1 July 2020, so that the tenant must move out on or before the lease expiry on 1 August 2020? My managing agent says I must give 30 days notice at the END of the fixed lease, meaning the tenant can stay until 1 September 2020 if they wish. To me, that essentially means a 12 month fixed term lease becomes in effect a 13 month lease (if the tenant chooses to stay for the full 30 days). The selling agent I spoke to says it is possible to give notice 30 days before the lease expires and therefore not extend the lease past the original 12 months. Would love some clarification from those in the know.. Thanks in advance!
