To secure an apartment, the Tenant must pay two week’s advanced rent plus the cost of a mattress protector and shower curtain if applicable and a Security Deposit / Bond of 4-6 weeks rent.
Every resident must pay a Bond. This will be held by Consumer and Business Services on behalf of the owner of the apartment. Bond is 4 weeks rent if the weekly rent is up to AU$250.00, and 6 weeks rent if the weekly rent is more than AU$251.0
The Bond cannot be used for rent unless authorised by the Manager
The Bond (Security Deposit) is refundable at the end of a Residential Tenancy
1. All rent is paid up to date – and rent will be charged on a daily basis until all keys are returned.

Updates to Policy
For all off-shore applications made to UniLodge, the property will be waitlisting these applications until such time as an announcement that the borders are opening.
So effectively, the property will not be offering contract leases, requesting security deposits or bonds or any advanced rent.
Property will be filing all applications in date order and when it's announced that international travel will begin again, the property will proactively reach out to all applicants and progress their applications to bookings.
Bond and Advance Rent
If an applicant has fulfilled all obligations as defined by UniLodge but the offer of accommodation at UniLodge is withdrawn, or if UniLodge Management is unable to provide accommodation in accordance with our obligations, all advance Rent instalments will be fully refunded. However, while we will try to offer applicants the rooms or apartments of their choice, this may not always be possible. If applicants are offered similar alternative accommodation within the same UniLodge facility before commencement of their lease or upon their arrival, but wish to decline this offer, a cancellation fee may apply. If your application has been accepted and you have paid your deposit of 2 weeks rent and you change your mind, then you are not entitled to a refund. Once the deposit has been received, this is taken as confirmation that you will move into that room and sign the lease that has been offered.
In the event of a resident being evicted for whatever reason, the resident will not be eligible for refund of any rent paid until another resident is found. At the end of a Residential Tenancy Agreement, where damage has been caused to UniLodge property and the Security Deposit is not enough to cover the cost of rectification, the Security Deposit will be claimed and the resident will remain liable for any additional costs. Where a resident breaks a Residential Tenancy Agreement without cause, the resident is not eligible for any refund or advanced rent until another resident is found.
Breaking the Residential Tenancy Agreement
The Residential Tenancy Agreement is a legally binding document, which if broken will incur penalties. Where a resident believes that they cannot stay in the apartment or continue to pay the rent, they must notify UniLodge management as soon as possible. When considering prematurely terminating your Residential Tenancy Agreement, it is your responsibility to do the following:
• Continue to pay the rental payments for the remainder of the agreement or until the apartment is re-let plus a portion of the letting fee, calculated according to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal formula.
• You may help in finding another suitable person to take over your apartment so there is a continuation of payments to the apartment owner.
• In all cases a departure cleaning fee applies.
