What is a bond and what do I need to be aware of when charging a deposit?
A rental bond is the security deposit a resident pays at the start of a tenancy. If you collect a deposit for supplying a key, a linen deposit or any other form of deposit, these are considered bond and must be lodged with the RTA. More information on bonds/deposits and payment options can be found on the RTA website
Where can I view current listings?
Can I rent to someone who hasn't viewed my property in person?
We recommend properties are viewed in person by prospective tenants to encourage face-to-face, local exchanges (even if they claim to be overseas).
