Subject: [Property Address] - Vacating

Dear CRASH Realty,

Our lease is due to expire XX/XX/XXXX and we would like to give notice to vacate.

Our forwarding address will be XXXX

What happens next?

We will then send you a confirmation email which will include the day and time for the final inspection and details of rent due by the end of your lease.

28 days before your vacate date - we will commence advertising.

21 days before your vacate date - we will commence home opens.

Home Opens

We conduct regular home opens during the last 3 weeks of you living in the property. You will receive a Form 19, notice of entry via email 2 days before the inspection giving you the exact day and time of the inspection. Home opens are conducted on weekdays during business hours and on Saturdays.

Saturday holy?

If Saturdays are a holy day for you, we can conduct home opens on Sundays instead but only at your request (through email). The residential tenancies act allows for weekday and Saturday home opens only, not Sundays, so this has to be at your request.
