That's it! unless you want to subscribe to any optional extras such as internet and car park. Just ask your friendly property host for prices. Of course, as with any contract, if you choose to break it early it will incur a fee. Please see our cancellation policy below for further information.

Booking Deposit

Upon booking, a deposit of one month's rentail in advance is required. Should you change your mind and decide not to stay with us the deposit is not refundable as it is to reserve the room for you and we will reject others once we receive your booking deposit. When you take up the tenancy this deposit will be converted to your first month's rental.

Monthly Rental

Your monthly rental amount is required in advanced during your tenancy while you are living at one of our properties. These fees are legally binding by your tenancy agreement and must be paid to avoid eviction. Monthly Rental is calculated as Weekly rental amount x 52 weeks / 12 months.

If renting single rooms, included in your rental amount are electrical, gas and water bills including the use of all common facilities. However phone services are subscribed and payable by the tenant.

If renting apartments, common facilities remain free to be used by the tenant. However, all utility services are payable by the tenant.

Cancellation Policy

If you decide to break your tenancy agreement early (i.e. prior to expiration date) one of the options below on a case-by-case basis and final decision that will apply is based on the discretion of the management of the building:

  1. The management company will find a replacement on your behalf. However, you may be charge a finder's fee for this service and any additional fees to cancel the tenancy agreement.
  2. The tenant will either have to find a suitable replacement to continue the orignal tenancy agreement. In this case, no finder's fee will be charged however, you may still be charged any additional fees to cancel the tenancy agreement.
  3. If none of the above options are chosen, the original tenant is required to continue paying the full monthly rental amount as agreed on the tenancy agreement contract until a suitable replacement can be found or until it the tenancy agreement is expired.

Security Bond (government regulation)

For all tenancy agreements regardless of accommodation property or room type you are living, a one months rental security bond is required. The monies will be paid into the Rental Bond Authority (Australian Government). At the end of the tenancy and if no damages are sustained to the property, this will be fully refunded to you. However if damages are found, this will be used to repair the damages.

Room Moves

After you have signed your tenancy agreement, should you wish to move rooms (subject to a room actually being available), you will incur a $50 admin fee, payable upfront.

Additional Extras

Each property provides an exhaustive list or facilities and amenities for all our tenants to use. However, if you wish to subscribe to additional extras (if available) such as wireless broadband internet services or car parking spaces, an additional fee will be required.
