Starting a tenancy

Rental bond

A rental bond or key deposit is a security deposit a tenant pays at the start of a tenancy.

Rent payments

Rent can be paid using several approved options which must be stated in the tenancy agreement.

Entry condition report

The Entry condition report records the condition of the property at the start of the tenancy.

Locks and security

The property manager/owner must ensure the property is ‘reasonably secure’, supply and maintain all locks and provide the tenant with keys. Keys include electronic key cards, swipe cards and remote controls.
