Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
The fact is it verbal does not mean you do not have a legal contract. It is recognised as a valid lease and it would be seen as an open lease.
Not paying the rent means you are in breach and you will be given a notice to pay the rent or evicted. If you do not pay then they will get an order from the court to have you evicted.
This is all legal and the law will support the landlord. You have a valid lease even though it is verbal.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
