Hello, We have a nice little house in Greater Sydney that we plan to move into in about 3 months. We have it rented our through a real estate on a short term basis to an older couple who was looking for a house in the area and has since purchased. They will break the lease 1 month early, with the penalty, I believe, of 1 week's rent. What is the purpose of a lease again??? We want to do a little extension on the house. We requested that our draftsmen be able to visit the property for 1.5 hours to measure up, etc. Because of Covid, no one is supposed to be at the house. We asked of we could perhaps buy the tenants a nice lunch or some such thing while the fellow measures up. They replied with a "no, sorry husband has medical issues and it's too hard to leave the house for this reason." The draftsmen said he could potentially attend if the old fellow was confined to one room. We tried that again (through the agent) and they knocked us back again. We are sympathetic to this man's medical issues. But we're also feeling the crunch as if we can't get the extension done before January when our young boy starts kindy, then we'll be in a pickle. The house is just too small for us. In hindsight we should have put a clause in the lease. It's a beautiful house, and we've immediately actioned any maintenance issues that the tenants have requested. So, we've by all accounts been good respectable landlords. Do we have any recourse? The agent is clearly not interested in advocating for us. Thank you for your thoughts!
