Transferring a bond

If a tenant moves to another rental property, their bond can be transferred to their new rental address if the property manager/owner agrees and there is no change to the:

  • bond amount, and
  • property manager/owner

Once the property manager/owner agrees to the transfer the tenant will need to complete the Change of rental property (Form 3).

The RTA will then continue to hold the bond instead of paying it back at the end of the tenancy.

Department of Housing, Local Government, Planning and Public Works​​ rental bond loans have conditions attached. Tenants can contact the department to learn more about transferring a bond that involves a bond loan or another property.
