Break your Lease app explodes due to Covid-19’s mass resignation boom

Richard Saville, CEO, Break Your Lease

A change in lifestyle caused by Covid-19 has resulted in Australians desperate for drastic change, according to founder and Director of the new app Break your LeaseRichard Saville.

A new term coined by a psychologist, Adam Grant, ‘languishing’ describes people who feel a deep sense of stagnation and may be contributing to the current mass resignations.

“Due to their feeling of languishing and then resignation in search of ‘van life’ or sea change or just something new and interesting, we find people want to move immediately.”

“They don’t want to wait out the end of their lease,” Saville said.

“Leaving your home before the end of your lease attracts a large termination fee, but the app solves the problem by listing rentals for lease in Australia and Worldwide.”

Effect of the lockdowns

Break your Lease has been downloaded by over a million people and has reached number one in the Lifestyle division of the App store a few months in a row recently.

“The lockdowns exacerbated the problem. It is understandable that they started to feel sick and tired of their own four walls and are anxious to just see something new.”

“So, this is my experience of people listing their property on the App.”

“Those individuals that want to move to new homes and new jobs, now that Covid-19 regulations have started to ease and borders drop are welcoming travel again.”

According to Saville, this equates to a large number of interesting and attractive listings on the App. Downloading the App is free, and a listing is below $50 per residential property.
