I need to vacate my IP at the end of the fixed term to do some renovation and then move in myself. It is rented through an agent in NSW. I know that we need to give 30 days notice to vacate, the expiry date is 9th Feb 2019. I am mindful that 30 days is not a lot of time, so was contemplating giving notice now (before Christmas) but I also don't want to wreck the tenant's Christmas by doing this. Would you give a bit extra notice or just the bare minimum under the legislation? I feel bad but it can't be helped... What is the best way for the agent to serve notice - I imagine posting it is not great because you have to add 4 or 7 working days to the notice period to take delivery into account - I assume they should physically deliver it to their letterbox + email a copy as evidence?
