Starting a lease
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.
