GENERAL INFORMATION PRIOR TO TAKING UP TENANCY

Securing the Property – Initial Payment.

Once the application has been approved you will be required to pay a minimum of four (4) weeks rent to secure the property. PLEASE NOTE: This must be paid in cleared funds. The property will not be secured for you, until this money has been received and all parties have signed the tenancy related documents.

Payment of Rent and Bond.

Prior to taking possession of the property, we require four (4) weeks rent and bond (equivalent to four (4) weeks rent). If your weekly rent is more than $700.00 per week, the bond requirement may vary. This office does not accept bond transfers. All monies must be paid in cleared funds prior to collecting the keys.

Signing of the Tenancy Agreement.

All occupants must sign the Tenancy Agreement prior to collecting the keys. The keys will not be released unless all occupants have signed the original Tenancy Agreement, shown photo identification and paid all monies in cleared funds and in full.

Telephone | Electricity | Gas Connection.

It is the tenant’s responsibility to connect the electricity/telephone/gas (if applicable) and to ensure it is disconnected at the end of the tenancy. All connection costs and deposits are the tenant’s responsibility.

Condition Report.

When you move into the property, be very particular with the Entry Condition Report and make sure you mark down anything not already outlined on the report. If you do not mark it down, you will be liable for discrepancies when you vacate. You must return the Condition Report to our office within three (3) days of moving into the property. Keep the report in a safe place during your tenancy, as you will need to refer to the report when vacating the property.

Tenancy Agencies.

Our office is a member of TICA (Ph: 1902 220 346) and RP Data Tenant Register (Ph: 1300 734 318), which are tenant agencies/databases. Should you default in your rent or breach a term of your Tenancy Agreement, your details may be listed with these agencies and others at the end of your tenancy. Once listed, the default information will remain on file until the matter is rectified. We do look forward to a harmonious Agent/Tenant relationship, and we will only take this course of action when absolutely necessary. If you experience financial hardship throughout the tenancy it is imperative that you contact our office to discuss the matter in further detail.
