landlord signs rental document but also signs as witness to contents of the rental agreement. is the rental agreement legal and binding?
Good Morning,

Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you

You can use that document as evidence of the agreement between you and the landlord.

Are they denying they have an agreement?

OK and no they are not denying.

Good Morning.

Is there anything else I can assist you with?

but is the document binding and demand cancellation and return of bond?

Good Morning

Yes it is binding. You want to terminate the lease?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, terminate the lease

Good Morning

Has your lease expired? How long does it have to run? Has the landlord breached any part of it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not yet, 2months to go and breached only in minor detail

Good Morning

You cannot terminate on minor breaches. You can give 3 weeks notice 3 weeks before the end of the lease and leave when it ends. This is the best course. It will cost you more to try and get orders form courts to be bale to leave. You are liable to pay rent to the end of the lease.

I would suggest you ride it out and 3 weeks before the end you can give him notice that you will be leaving at the end of the term.

Is there anything else I can assist you with?
