Tenancy agreement

 

We do care to find the best suited match as a tenant. The Residential Tenancies Act requires a tenancy agreement to be signed by all persons living at the premises along with the Managing Agent to sign on behalf of the landlord.

Terms of the tenancy is usually six (6) or twelve (12) months. One (1) weeks letting fee is payable for each new application. We offer tenants three (3) forms of payment to ensure convenience and elimination of excuses. Direct Debt, Payment Direct to Trust Account & Bank Cheque. Tenants are required to pay two (2) weeks rent in advance when they are approved for a property.

 

 

Occupancy

 

Only the people (and the number of people) included on your tenancy agreement are permitted to reside at the property on a permanent basis. Should a tenant wish to move in or out you are required to notify us in writing immediately. Please note, a new tenant will need to be approved through the application process prior to moving in.

 

 

Bond

 

The rental bond is requested as financial protection should there be a breach in the tenancy agreement. Your rental bond will be lodged with the Residential Tenancy Bond Authority. The bond is held as security against any property damage, undue wear and tear or in the event there is money owing at the end of tenancy. Once it is established that all conditions of the tenancy have been met, the bond will be refunded promptly. The amount of bond payable is specified in the tenancy agreement. Please note, the bond required may increase where there is a rent increase.
