Online Bond Lodgement

You can use the RTA’s Bond Lodgement Web Service to lodge or increase your rental bond online. A rental bond is a security deposit paid at the start of the tenancy.

If you are lodging or increasing a bond online for the first time, please refer to our helpful resources below.

Note: If you are using Safari web browser to access RTA Web Services, please ensure you have switched off 'prevent cross-site tracking' in your browser settings. Learn how here. Alternatively, please use Google Chrome.

Before you begin, you will need:

Tenants

  • your QGov login details (or create a QGov account)
  • your rental property address
  • names and unique email addresses for all tenants
  • your credit/debit card for payment or use BPAY
  • details of your managing party, including their address, email and contact number
  • your bond number (for bond increases only)

Managing parties

  • your QGov login details (or create a QGov account)
  • your organisation’s RTA ID number
  • the rental property address
  • names and unique email addresses for all tenants
  • your credit/debit card for payment.
  • the property's bond number (for bond increases only)

Organisations and joint lessors will also need their RTA ID number and the main, registered email address that the RTA uses to send correspondence to your company.

We recommend having a copy of the tenancy agreement available for reference, as this contains information you will need to successfully complete and submit your online form.

Note: If you do not have Australian-issued identification and cannot verify your digital identity through QGov, you can use the RTA’s paper-based Bond lodgement form or call our helpdesk for assistance on 1300 366 311.
