Part 5 Division 3 Section 98
98   Breach of agreement—termination notice by tenant
(1)  A tenant may give a termination notice on the ground that the landlord has breached the residential tenancy agreement.
(2)  The termination notice must specify a termination date that is not earlier than 14 days after the day on which the notice is given.
(3)  The termination notice may specify a termination date that is before the end of the fixed term of the residential tenancy agreement if it is a fixed term agreement.
(4)  The Tribunal may, on application by a landlord made before the termination date and within the period prescribed by the regulations, revoke a termination notice by a tenant if satisfied that the landlord has remedied the breach and that it is appropriate, in the circumstances of the case, to continue the tenancy.
 The tenant may apply directly to the Tribunal on the ground of breach by the landlord for a termination order without first giving notice (see section 103).
