Having just bought our first property in Australia after being here since December 2011 we now need to arrange some new tenants for the property we've been renting for the past 2.5 years.
It's a nice place in a lovely area, 5 minutes from the stunning Port Noarlunga beach and all its surrounding facilities which we've all enjoyed using as a family over the time we've been here.
I'm just asking whether its normal for the departing tenants, us, to be liable for paying the rent until the lease is due to expire unless we can find replacement trenants?
We are due to move into our new house in mid November but the lease runs through to February '15 so we don't really want to have to pay rent on somewhere we aren't living as well as the bills for the house.
Any advice, or anyone interested feel free to DM me.
