Booking Info

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.

The 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.

Regular Policy

Where a Resident believes that they cannot stay in the unit or continue to pay the rent, they must notify the management in writing as soon as possible - two weeks’ notice is the minimum time. When considering prematurely terminating your Tenancy Agreement, it is your responsibility to either continue to pay rent as per the agreement until the unit is re-let or find another suitable person to take over your unit so there is a continuation of payments to the unit owner. 

The cost levied will be 2 weeks rent plus GST, $165 Advertising fee, and Rent paid until the apartment is leased again.
