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 a year) then divided by 12 (months) to give a 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)
