What are some common reasons for serving a section 146 notice?
Section 146 covers most breaches of covenant, barring non-payment of rent. Some examples of covenant breaches that fall under section 146 include:
- Unapproved alterations to the property.
- Damages to the property.
- Sub-letting parts of the property (without consent.)
- Noise complaints.
- Parking on a neighbour’s drive.
Upon learning of these issues, the landlord must notify the tenant as soon as possible. The landlord should then send the notice immediately if the tenant does not remedy the breaches.
What does relief mean?
Relief means the judge may choose to suspend the order or impose an extension for the tenant to make changes. However, this is always at the judge’s discretion.
