Renting Information

Know your rights as a tenant


Before deciding to rent a property there are a few rules and regulations that you need to take into consideration. A Residential Tenancy Agreement or ‘lease’ will be drawn up and is the legal contract that both you and your landlord must abide by. A lease should include information such as;
  • Location of the property
  • Total rent
  • Amount of the bond
  • Commencement and end date of your tenancy
  • The landlords’ name
Lease/tenancy agreements differ between states, so please make sure you have the documentation from your appropriate state.

Never sign a blank form, if you do not understand something, then contact the correct establishments and ask for advice.
