Guide to Renting

Before deciding to rent a property there are a few rules and regulations to be considered.

A Residential Tenancy Agreement (or lease) will be drawn up and is a legally binding contract that both you (the tenant) and the owner of the property (the landlord) must abide by.

A lease should include information such as:

  • location of the property
  • the total amount of the rent to be paid (weekly, fortnightly or monthly)
  • the total amount of the bond
  • commencement and end date of your tenancy
  • the landlord's name and signature
  • the tenant's name and signature
  • any special conditions
