    Our rental accomodation was damaged in a mini tornado 2 weeks ago. We declined assistance but now after builders and insurance lying and minimal repairs being affected, we now find that everything is at a standstill because of asbestos.

    A hygienist had already declared it safe but an owner occupier raised the issue with insurance. My lease finishes on Aug. 2 but I have already signed a new lease to run on from that date to Feb. next year as no one can give a definitive answer for when the units can be reoccupied. Can I break the lease curent and future so I can get somewhere to live?

    You can leave now if you fill in and hand the landlord/agent a form 13.

    On the page I linked there is good information, including the possibility of negotiating reduced rent. Have a read and decide what you want to do.

    Thanks, that is very good info.

    I'm new to renting as I've always owned my house. I really appreciate the reply.

    Many thanks, 3 grounds to choose from.
