Tenant Rights

Know your rights as a tenant

Before deciding to rent a property there are a few rules and regulations that you need to take into consideration. A Residential Tenancy Agreement or ‘lease’ will be drawn up and is the legal contract that both you and your landlord must abide by. A lease should include information such as;

  •     Location of the property
  •     Total rent
  •     Amount of the bond
  •     Commencement and end date of your tenancy
  •     The landlords’ name

Lease/tenancy agreements differ between states, so please make sure you have the documentation from your appropriate state.
