What happens if a tenant needs to end their lease early due to DFV?

In QLD tenants can end their lease due to DFV with only 7 days’ notice if they have provided evidence. This may include a report from their doctor, caseworker, or police.

The Residential Tenancies Authority has a Pro-forma DFV REPORT that your tenant can use and give the person signing it for them as an authorised professional.

The DFV survivor is not obligated to leave this report or even copies of it or any documentation with the property manager or owner; however, the property manager must be able to sight it as verification.
