If you decide that you want to rent the property and I offer it to you for rent:
Review the terms of the residential tenancy agreement linked here because these terms will need to be agreed to:
For me to take the property off the market and not offer it to someone else:
- the first two weeks rent will need to be paid in advance via bank transfer to the bank account provided within the specified timeframe if you are offered the property.
After you have made the first two weeks rent payment and by the day that I meet you to give you the keys, the residential tenancy agreement linked above will need to be completed and electronically signed by following the instructions at the above link.
A bond equivalent to 4 weeks rent will need to be paid before I handover the keys to you. This can be paid to me via bank transfer before I provide the keys or in cash on the day when I provide you the keys. I will lodge the bond with the Office of Rental Bonds and I will ensure that it is paid back to you in full after you vacate provided that your rent is paid up to date and the property/carpet is cleaned and property and all contents are left in essentially the same state as when you moved in with the exception of fair wear and tear.
Sometime during the first week, the following forms would also need to be completed and electronically signed by both of us:
- a condition of premises report agreement
- an inventory report agreement (if the property contains any inventory).
At an appropriate time, I will instruct you to complete these.
You will need to pay for electricity (and gas if applicable). Electricity (and gas) will be connected upon arrival but you will need to call ActewAGL for electricity (and gas) connection on 13 14 93 during the first few days of arrival to set up an electricity (gas) account for the property in your name starting from the date that you move in.
The water account will be held in my name. For apartments, you do not need to pay for water usage. For houses, you will need to pay for water usage and I will seek reimbursement from you on a quarterly basis. Water will be connected upon arrival.
