Lease-end

End of lease


In some circumstances you may wish to request an early lease end (prior to the lease expiry date).

For further information or assistance please contact our Leasing team.



Your lease-end make-good service entitlements will be outlined in the DHA Lease Agreement1.

More information can be found here.

If you require further information or assistance please contact Lessor Management or call 139 342, option 2.


The DHA Lease Agreement requires DHA to deliver the lease-end make-good service entitlements to a similar standard, colour and tone. More information can be found here.

There may be an opportunity for you to request a change to the colour and material and arrange to pay the difference in cost.

You can register this request with Lessor Management as you near the end of your lease.


Property handback

Learn more about your property handback.

If you have questions or concerns about the condition of your property at the handback inspection there are two options available to you (these options are available provided it can be demonstrated that DHA has not fulfilled the obligations in accordance with the DHA Lease Agreement):

  1. Speak with the DHA representative at the handback inspection to reach a mutually agreed outcome to address the items you are concerned with, or
  2. If a mutually agreed outcome with the DHA representative cannot be achieved, you or your authorised agent can request to reschedule the handback inspection to allow time to review and address the items you are concerned with.

If you require further information or assistance please contact Lessor Management or call 139 342, option 2.


The final month's rental payment will be held until after the final inspection.

More information can be found here.

If you have any queries about your final payment please contact Lessor Management or call 139 342, option 2.
