Tenant Tips


Applying for a property

When you apply to rent a property through a real estate agent, be ready to provide references and information about yourself and other intending occupants. This enables us to quickly process your application giving you the best chance of success.

Residential Tenancy Agreement

When entering into a residential tenancy agreement, ask your agent to explain terms or conditions you don't understand. When you sign the Residential Tenancy Agreement you will receive a copy so that you have a record of each party's rights and responsibilities. You will also receive an Inspection Sheet setting out the condition of the property at the beginning of the tenancy.

Rental Bond

The amount of rental bond paid by a tenant as a form of security for the landlord varies according to the type of property involved, but is usually either four to six weeks rent. The rental bond is returned at the end of the term of your rental agreement provided the property is in the same condition as when you entered the property.
