Hiya's Lets say its come time to sell your investment property that has tenants in it. What are the rules? Who has rights? How many times can opens be held? Seems to be some confusion around this legislation, despite agents being in operation for a number of years, so lets get to the bottom of it. Ensure your PM is on top of this info too. First things first - in every state in Australia - if you sell a leased property then the buyer inherits the tenant, the lease and the lease duration, but not the management agreement. There's some exceptions available where a tenant is on a periodic agreement and vacant possession is a term of the sales contract. Notice to let the tenant know varies a little between states - 14 days written notice is provided before listing the property for sale, aka signing an agency agreement with a sales agent. During this time you can't advertise the property or allow inspections. If you list the property for sale (note list, not actually sell) within the first 2 months of a tenancy, they can exit the lease without penalty if they were not advised of that intention before entering into the lease. In NSW this is not limited to 2 months. Photography - obviously when you sell a property you want some nice photographs done. This is allowed, but be careful about getting the tenants possessions or anything that would identify their identity in the photos. Open Inspections - As written about in Tenancy Tip Thursday - Entering the property, doing open inspections comes under the same section of the Act as other types of inspections would. The maximum frequency for this is twice per 7 days at a time agreed upon with the tenant. They have to be reasonable with agreeing on a time and if they're not, you can make them at any time (within Normal Hours - remember that term?) with reasonable notice. Obviously you want their cooperation so the sale goes smoothly, so best to get everyone on the same side Also, the tenant has the right to be home during inspections and also on auction day if selling with that method, but it's probably best for everyone if they're not. Purchaser's details must be provided to the tenant in writing 14 days prior to settlement of the property. This must include the purchaser's name and the date they must begin paying the new owner from. Quiet enjoyment is a very general term which appears in every state's Act. This still needs to be adhered to during the sales process. Fines are applicable for not adhering to the state's tenancy Act when selling a property, often $5000 in SA and varies a little in other states. Other states vary in their rules a little - i remember in Victoria there was debate over whether there could be inspections by appointment rather then opens. @thatbum , @Lil Skater or @DiligentPM any comments on how it varies in your state?
