Thanks in advance for any assistance,
After a fairly traumatic year I ended up having a breakdown and moving interstate for family support.
Unfortunately was not thinking clearly at the time of leaving the rental and vacated on Friday last week by leaving the keys locked inside, all personal property removed, and about 30 days rent outstanding. Not something I am proud of at all.
In hindsight I realise my lease had actually expired 12-Dec last year, real estate agent and I had spoken about extending lease, however no agreement was signed. Does this cause implications with respect to outstanding rent?
Further the Agent has advised that I have not 'vacated' property by not surrendering keys directly to their office. Their suggestion is I hire a locksmith to open the house so I can retrieve keys, however I left the state over the weekend,
Any suggestions would be welcome,
