Dependent property is defined as any unprofitable contract or other immovable property that is not for sale, is not easy to sell, or may lead to an obligation to pay money or the performance of another incriminating act [note 8]. If the tenant leaves the rental property, either at the end of the lease or earlier than is permitted by the contract, and the official receiver acts as trustee and owner, the bond must be paid. Tenants are responsible for ensuring that the property is in as good condition at the time of the extract as when moving in, subject to normal/fair wear and tear. When the lease ends, the lessor has the right to check the condition and content of the property, and if all goes well, the full amount of the deposit must be returned to the tenant. If damage other than the usual wear and tear has occurred, the lessor may be entitled to withhold all or part of the deposit to return the property to the original position. Ultimately, rental agents are not the only way to legally establish leases. You can download/buy them at many outlets. Damn it, you can even create your own. Where there is equity in a property and the official receiver is a trustee, the official liquidator should not normally consider carrying out an inspection or repair, as this is unlikely to result in a benefit to creditors. In addition, it is unlikely that a deduction from the deposit will be accepted by the tenant, unless there is a detailed inventory from the beginning and another at the end of the lease.
A notice under section 21 inviting a lessee to leave the premises may be served during the operation of the AST [note 36] in order to expire after the expiry of the lease. . . .
