Important: The RTA is going paperless and will cease bulk printing of all forms and publications from 1 January 2020.
The Bond lodgement should be used when:
- lodging a full bond
- paying off the bond, or
- increasing the bond (weekly rent increases)
Filling out the form
Only tenants who have contributed to the bond and the property manager/owner should fill out this form.
The property manager/owner must lodge all rental bonds with the RTA within 10 days. It is an offence not to do so and may result in a financial penalty.
The RTA will issue an Acknowledgement of rental bond to everyone listed on the bond to confirm lodgement.
