The standard Tenancy Agreement/contract is for a fixed-term tenancy of 12 months.

Q. What is the basis for calculating the rent?

Rental is paid per calendar month on the same day - not every four weeks.

To calculate the monthly rental: The weekly rental rate is divided by 7 (days in a week) to get the daily rate, then multiplied by 365 (days in year) then divided by 12 (months) to give monthly rental amount.

Q. What is the bond?

Bond (also known as a security deposit) is the amount of money you pay at the commencement of your tenancy and is held in trust by the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA) for the duration of your tenancy. It is usually equal to one month's rent. (it can up to six weeks if the rent is over $350 per week)

The first month's rent and Bond can be paid via Direct Debit from your Australian bank account or via Credit Card.

Q. When do I pay my rent?

Your rent is due on the same day every month, starting from the date your Agreement / lease / contract commences. If your lease starts on 15th January, your rent is due on or before the 15th of every month.

Tenants are responsible for cleaning their own apartments. If an apartment is shared by 2 or 3 people, the communal kitchen, living room and bathroom must be cleaned by all the tenants named in the tenancy.

A formal Notice to Vacate (NTV) is given to all the tenants. Every tenant receives a "Notice to Vacate - at the end of the fixed term tenancy, with the initial Tenancy Agreement/ Lease.

The Owner is entitled to compensation if you have failed any terms or conditions in your Tenancy Agreement or breached the Residential Tenancies Act (Victorian State Government Law covering rental issues).
