    From a tax pov, you may still have to pay CGT on this property if you sell in the future, but it should be limited to the increase in value while it was rented. So it may be a good idea to get a valuation on it done when you move in (tell the valuer you want a conservative one done!).

    If you think you will ever move out of this one and rerent it, then it would be best not to pay down the loan on it, but to put the proceeds on the sale into a 100% offset linked to the new home. Better for tax reasons if you rent it out again.

    If there is a lease in place, 21 days prior to the expiry of the lease (me thinks) – ref: http://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au

    That is, you cannot break the lease prior to expiry unless there is a default & judgement against the tenant.
