  1. All the parties can agree to end the tenancy.
  2. Your landlord or agent gives you a valid ‘Notice to Vacate’.
  3. You give valid notice to your landlord or agent that you intend to vacate.
Even if a tenancy has a fixed end date, notice must be given to end it. For further details regarding Ending a Tenancy Agreement, refer to www.consumer.vic.gov.au
