Q. What is a Bond ?
A Bond is also known as a security deposit and is the equivalent of 4 weeks rent. A Bond is payable at the start of the lease in addition to rent and covers the unit owner for unpaid rent or bills and any damage to the unit. Bond payments are held in trust by the Queensland Government (Residential Tenancy Authority / RTA). At the end of the lease, provided that all rent and bills are paid and the apartment is left in a clean and undamaged condition – we will both agree on any deduction amounts and send a Bond Refund Form to the RTA to release the Bond. Refunds will normally be lodged in a nominated Australian ban account if you are leaving to return home overseas and will not have an Australian bank account open to receive your refund, you will need to complete an International Funds Transfer form in addition to the Bond refund form.
