If a tenant refuses to pay the rent, which means he or she has breached the tenancy agreement, you need to send the tenant a Notice to Remedy Breach (RTA Form 11) via email or post. The tenant has 10 days to remedy (fix) the breach. If the tenant disagrees with the Notice, they can lodge a Dispute Resolution Request (RTA Form 16) with the Residential Tenancies Authority.

If the tenant fails to remedy (fix) the breach, you can send a Notice to Leave (RTA Form 12) and he or she will have 14 days to move out. Also, if the tenant disagrees with the Notice, they can lodge a Dispute Resolution Request (RTA Form 16) with the Residential Tenancies Authority.

If the tenant does not move out within the 14 days, the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal will be applied to end the tenancy. If a Termination Order and Warrant of Possession is granted by the Tribunal the tenant must vacate the property by the date the Tribunal sets outs.

If the tenant does not move out by the date given on the Termination Order, the Police will enter the property under the Warrant of Possession to remove the tenant and hand the property back to you.

Any goods valued at more than $1500 will be stored for 30 days and the costs of removal and storage charged to rental account of the tenant. After the 30-day period the goods will either be disposed of via an Order from the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal or sold at auction.
