Under the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008, rent is to be paid to the Agency up to and including the day you vacate and handover keys to the Property.
Please do not stop paying rent and assume that this amount will be deducted from your Bond as the Bond is NOT to be used for rent payments. If required, the Bond may be used for costs associated with returning the Property back to the way it was at the start of the tenancy except for fair wear and tear.
Ensure you cancel your automatic Direct Debit payment, overpayments of rent to our office will incur a fee.
TIPS TO OBTAIN A FULL BOND REFUND
Refer to the Entry Condition Report provided at the beginning of the Tenancy in your Moving-In Kit. See if there are any changes to this report allowing for fair wear and tear.
