A landlord can give a tenant notice to vacate for several reasons. These are listed on our Landlord giving notice to vacate page.
If you are a landlord and you want your tenant to leave, you should use our Notice to vacate form.
After serving a tenant with a valid notice to vacate, you can apply for a possession order from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
The timeframes for applying for a possession order vary, depending on the reason.
As Victoria's consumer affairs regulator, we help landlords, agents and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities.
