    Is there a minimum amount you can be put on tica for?

    Long story short

    Tenant thought that change of mind and change of circumstance is landlords fault and is entitled to release from lease

    I agreed to release until they found a new tenant

    Tenant leaves with 1 month to go and leaves a lot of rubbish.

    I want to put them on tica. Rubbish removal costs and cleaning and other costs incurred

    I could get a pro to temove the rubbish and exhaust bond.

    I could get a handyman to remove the rubbish cheaper and minimise the bond shortage

    Say the bond was exhausted by $50 can i put them on tica

    Hi TMNT

    If your IP is in QLD then the following legislation applies;

    A tenant can be listed on a database at the end of a tenancy if:
    • the amount of money owed by the tenant is more than the bond, including
      • rent arrears if the Notice to remedy breach (Form 11) was given for this rent
      • abandonment of a property
      • money owed after an agreement has been reached through RTA conciliation or a QCAT order that has not been paid
    • if the tenancy has been terminated by QCAT because of:
      • repeated breaches of a conciliation agreement by the tenant
      • objectionable behaviour by the tenant
    In addition to this you would also be required to inform the tenants in writing of your intention and give them a reasonable opportunity to review the information to be entered before you list on TICA.
