Mum is ordered out of daughter's rental property by judge

IT'S D-day for a Rockhampton mum who has been ordered to vacate her daughter's rental property after a judge ruled the tenancy agreement be terminated.

The daughter made an application to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal to evict her mother from the property earlier this year on the grounds that she had breached the agreement.

She said she notified her mother through the appropriate paperwork that she was going to sell the house and she had a month to vacate.

She claimed her mother not only failed to leave in the given time, but had also allowed extra people to live there.

Work had also been carried out on the house without her permission.

She said her mother had not paid rent for seven weeks.

A QCAT document states that the residential tenancy agreement was to be terminated as of midnight May 13 on the grounds of failure to leave.

The mother, with the support of another daughter, made an application to re-open the matter.

However, this was refused last week and the mother was given until today to pack her belongings and vacate the property.

The applicant's sister said her mother, who has lived at the house for about 11 years, was "just a wreck".

"She pleaded for a bit more time but the judge gave her seven days," she said.

The mother will move into another rental property.
