Rental Bond

  • The bond payment will be lodged by us with the NSW Department of Fair Trading, which will provide you with a Bond Registration Number.
  • The bond will be held as security against any outstanding rent or damage and will be reimbursed once the property is fully vacated, less any deductions that may be agreed upon or directed by the Tribunal in the event of a dispute.

Condition Report

  • Prior to moving in you will receive a condition report which you will need to check, make any additional comments on, sign and return a copy to us within seven days.

Rental Payments

  • Rental payments can be made fortnightly or calendar monthly in advance.
  • They can be made using the reference number we provide you with, which enables you to make rental payments from your account electronically. We do not accept personal or bank cheques.
  • We understand that occasionally unforeseen circumstances prevent you from paying your rent on time and we endeavor to be understanding in these situations.
