Rentals – FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
What costs will I incure if I break my lease?
If you break your lease you are liable to pay any outstanding rent on the property until a new tenant is found in addition to any advertising costs and a “Break Lease” fee of 1 week’s rent + GST.
What do I need to do if my flatmate wants to move out of our house?
Your flatmate is responsible for paying their share of the rent until another approved flatmate is found. We will then organise the Bond transfer process – taking into account any end-of-lease costs such as carpet cleaning.
What happens if I can't pay my rent?
You must contact us and advise us of your circumstances immediately. If your rental payment is 8 or more days late then you will be issued with a Notice To Remedy Breach.
However, by advising us early the property owner may agree to extend those terms if you are able to demonstrate an ability to catch up with your payments within a reasonable period of time.
What do I do if I lose my job and have to relocate before my lease expires to find work or start a new job elsewhere?
You should advise us immediately as soon as the situation arises and we will discuss and explore your options.
