Hey guys, I've been a viewer of these forums for quite some time but now I require some individual advice. I bought a property (VIC) back in March with the property rented back to the previous owner on a 12 month lease as is. This worked out well for me, as the house would definitely need some renovations for any new tenant. So I thought the delay in renovations for at least 12 months would help with my cash flow for the time being. Unfortunately, I've recently been advised that the tenant wishes to break the lease on the grounds of hardship with just under 21 days notice provided. The tenant has agreed to leave a extra weeks rent as compensation. I feel like this is not enough as I stand to lose quite a lot of money as a result. The PM has told me to proceed with that offer, as well as advising me that I may be able to claim further compensation, only if the property is listed straight away and no renovations are completed. However, I feel like the property will need some minimum renovations for the next tenant. The renovations will not take more than a week. Is it possible to still claim rent until the new tenant moves in and still undertake renovations (for e.g. removal of carpet, installation of new kitchen appliance etc)? Or any other form of compensation? Any sort of advice on how to reduce my costs in such a situation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for your help!
