Starting a lease
When your rental application is accepted, you will usually need to sign a lease, pay a rental bond, and complete a condition report for the property.
If your rental application is accepted, the landlord or agent will usually ask you to:
- sign a lease, also known as a residential tenancy agreement
- pay a rental bond
- pay up to 2 weeks' rent in advance
- complete and return the condition report within 7 days of signing the lease.
The lease is a legal document that outlines all the rules and conditions of your stay at the property.
It is important that you read and fully understand the lease and all other documentation before signing.
