Before deciding to rent a property, there are a few rules and regulations that you need to take into consideration.
Lease/tenancy agreements differ between states, so please make sure you have the documentation from your appropriate state.
A Residential Tenancy Agreement or 'lease' will be drawn up and is the legal contract that both you and your landlord must abide by.
Never sign a blank form if you do not understand something. Contact the correct establishments and ask for advice.
A lease should include information such as:
- Location of property, amount of rent, amount of bond,
- Commencement and ending date of tenancy
- Owners name
- Special conditions, if any
