What leasing agreement do you have?

Unsure where to begin or what steps need to be taken? By understanding the leasing agreement your situation falls under, you can be organised in your approach to moving out. As a university student, your leasing agreement will fall under one of the following categories.

Fixed-Term Tenancy

The rental agreement is bound by a start and end date, on which you must vacate the property (usually 6 or 12 months).

Periodic Tenancy

An agreement that runs from week to week, or month to month.


Tenants in the house have a joint agreement with the landlord, and each housemate holds equal status and responsibilities. Co-tenancy falls under either fixed-term or periodic tenancy.


The ‘head tenant’ in the household has an agreement with the landlord. Making the head tenant the landlord for all other housemates.

Preparation for the move

Once you’ve established your specific leasing agreement, it’s time to prepare for the big move! Compiling a list of mandatory moving-out jobs can be overwhelming. Focusing on these steps during your preparation will encourage a seamless, stress-free move!

Furniture removal and storage

Organise a team of removalists or simply hire a truck and get the work done yourself. If you need to store your belongings for any period of time, a storage space can be hired.

Disconnect utilities

Organise to have a final reading taken and ensure all utilities are disconnected to avoid any costs after you’ve vacated the property.
