Hi. I would like to know what other Agencies do regarding Tenants not moving out upon expiry of Lease Agreements? Every year we struggle with a lot of Tenants who are given notice in terms of the Lease that their agreements will not be renewed after the expiry of the Lease. The issue is, we deal mostly with Student property rentals and the starting date on 90 % of our Leases are 1 January. Is there any legal backing for penalizing Tenants for late key returns? In most instances they seem quite unfazed and will agree to pay the days they over stayed calculated pro rata. However we have to bear the brunt from new Tenants not being able to occupy.
