Documentation is an important part of renting a property, since it ensures that you understand all of your rights and responsibilities as a tenant. The sign up process for property services will ensure that all terms are clarified and agreed to, which aids in reducing disputes. This in turn facilitates a better relationship between you, your property manager and the landlord.
As members of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV), we make sure that all of our documentation meets the strict guidelines set out by the REIV. This ensures that standards are maintained and all parties involved are protected.
Sign up for our Property Management and let us guide you through the process of property rental. We’re with our prospective tenants at every step of the application process, providing the right documentation to speed up the property rental process. Our processes allow us to easily filter through candidate applications and select only those who fit our landlord’s criteria. Our streamlined application process makes it easier for tenants to apply by just simply attaching all the relevant documents along with their application, which makes it easier for us to compare all applications resulting in quicker outcomes for our tenants and landlords.
We follow the guidelines outlined by REIV (Real Estate Institute of Victoria)
The lease document is a six-page document which outlines every aspect of the agreement between you and your landlord.
At Property Managers Online, we will go through every term of the agreement with you and provide examples to make sure you better understand your rights and responsibilities as a tenant. We’ll also reference Consumer Affairs Victoria’s rental guide for tenants, which can be accessed here.
Special conditions (if required) are negotiated before the beginning of the lease, and are added to this document. These terms are in compliance with the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
We’re committed to making the process as stress-free for you as possible, so don’t be shy about asking us as any questions you might have.
By signing the lease, this indicates that you (and your landlord) agree to the conditions outlined in it.
A bond must be paid prior to moving in to your new property. Bonds provide protection to the landlord in case of damage and/or unpaid rent during your tenancy.
Bonds are lodged with the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA) and can be paid either in cash, through EFT, or by cheque. The bond amount equates to one month’s rent.
The bond is divided equally across all leaseholders. At the end of your tenancy, the bond will be refunded to all parties as per the bond receipt
