So... we rent and are moving away near the end of the year to Geelong where we'll buy a PPOR within the next year or so. The lease is up in September and so we've requested to go on periodic lease for the final two-three months. The agent has written "The owners cannot have periodic due to insurance", requested a new six-month lease and has since gone silent when I've requested clarification. My feeling is this move is ... b.s. frankly. I've never heard of such a thing but perhaps some owners can advise. We're in QLD if that helps.
