Tips for your search

Here are some factors to consider when finding your perfect home:

  • Proximity to your education provider
  • Proximity to public transport and associated travel costs
  • Nearby shops, hospitals, police stations, parks and other amenities
  • If there is adequate heating or cooling
  • Noise levels
  • Safety and security of building
  • Insurance costs
  • If appliances, light switches and smoke alarms are functional

As technology advances, so does the risk of getting scammed. Warning signs of rental scams include:

  • Rent price is listed as being significantly cheaper than similar accommodation in the area
  • Being asked to pay a bond or deposit or sign a lease before viewing the property
  • Being asked for personal details such as your bank and credit card numbers
  • Property doesn't match the photos or description upon inspection
  • Landlord makes excuses to prevent you from viewing the property
  • Landlord requests money via money transfer

Before you sign your lease, make sure that you:

  • Have sufficient funds to cover the bond
  • Arrange a reference or guarantor
  • Inspect the property for its existing condition and any issues
  • Receive and keep a copy of your rental agreement
  • Receive a receipt for all rent and bond payments
  • Read the fine print of your rental agreement
