General Tenant Info

Below are the requirements most agents need you to provide when you decide to rent a property and enter into a Residential Tenancy Agreement

  • When leasing a property, the agent or landlord will ask for certain identification and information prior to agreeing to accept a prospective tenant. Most landlords want some sort of assurance that they will have their rent paid regularly and the property maintained by a tenant. Generally the information you will have to provide is: evidence of previous good tenancies, employment records, credit card references, drivers license number. The landlord reserves the right not to accept any prospective tenant.
  • When renting a property, a Condition Report is done to note the condition of a property at the commencement of a tenancy. The landlord also requires that the tenant pay a Bond. This is generally 4 weeks rent for an unfurnished property and can be up to 6 weeks rent for a furnished property. By law this money is held by the NSW government with all interest going to the government. These funds are held until the tenancy has been terminated.
  • It is a clause of every tenancy agreement that the tenant pay the rent in advance, either monthly or weekly at all times and up to and including the final termination date. Upon the termination of a tenancy, the bond is refunded after a final inspection is carried out and it has been deemed as acceptable and able to be re-leased in its current condition, taking into account general wear and tear. If there is any damage to be repaired or rent unpaid, the landlord can deduct this from the Bond.
