Before deciding to rent a property there are a few rules and regulations that you need to take into consideration. A Residential Tenancy Agreement or 'lease' will be drawn up and is the legal contract that both you and your landlord must abide by.
A lease should include information such as:
• Location of the property
• Total rent
• Amount of the bond
• Commencement and end date of your tenancy
• The landlords' name
Lease/tenancy agreements differ between states, so please make sure you have the documentation from your appropriate state.
Never sign a blank form if you do not understand something. Contact the correct establishments and ask for advice.
