PAYMENT OF HOLDING DEPOSIT & BOND
Prior to taking possession of the property, we require 2 weeks rent as the holding deposit and 4 weeks rent as bond. If your weekly rent is more than $700 per week, the bond requirement may vary. If you are using a bond loan service you must state this on your application form. All monies must be paid in cleared funds prior to collecting the keys.
COLLECTION OF KEYS
You will need to finalise payment of monies and sign all lease documents before collecting the keys. Keys are to be collected during office hours ONLY unless negotiated prior.
SIGNING OF THE TENANCY AGREEMENT
All occupants must sign the Tenancy Agreement prior to handover of keys. The keys will not be released unless all occupants have signed the Tenancy Agreement and paid all monies in cleared funds.
ELECTRICITY CONNECTION/TELEPHONE CONNECTION
It is the tenant’s responsibility to connect the electricity and gas and to ensure that it is disconnected at the end of the tenancy. All connection costs and deposits are the tenant’s responsibility.
When you move into the property, be very particular with the Condition Report and make sure you mark down anything not already outlined on the report. If you do not mark it down, you will be liable for discrepancies when you
vacate. You must return the Condition Report to our office within three days of moving into the property. Keep the report in a safe place during your tenancy, as you will need to refer to the report when vacating the property.
TENANT DEFAULT AGENCY
Our office is a member of TICA, which is a tenant default agency. Should you default in your rent or breach a term of your Tenancy Agreement, the details will be listed with this agency at the end of your tenancy. Once listed, the information will remain on file until the default is rectified. We do look forward to a harmonious relationship, and we will only take this course of action when absolutely necessary. If you experience financial hardship throughout the tenancy, it is imperative that you contact QCAT or our office to discuss the matter in further detail.
