If you choose not to use the lease, the owner/broker can withhold the fees. If a lessor decides to enter into a lease agreement with you, he (or his representative) cannot hide from you any of these “essential facts”: in addition to leaving the parties room to fill out the relevant data, the standard form contract also comfortably lists the standard conditions that must apply legally to all agreements (written or written). A landlord/representative may ask you to pay a stay fee if your rental application is approved. The best thing they can ask for is a week`s rent. Check the premises and complete the report carefully. The report is used as evidence if the lessor/agent challenges the return of your obligation at the end of the lease. It`s also a good idea to take pictures at the beginning (and end) of the lease and keep them in a safe place. 1. Meet them and sign a rental form available here: www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/369985/Residential_tenancy_agreement_30_October_2016.pdf (At that time, you will also provide them with a new list of tenants from here: www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/Factsheet_print/Tenants_and_home_owners/Renting_a_home/FTR72_New_tenant_checklist.pdf 2. Complete a status report within 7 days of the start of the lease, keep a copy for yourself and provide two copies to the tenant. If possible, it may be helpful to conclude this with the tenant in order to minimize disagreements about what is mentioned. You can request this form here www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0010/369946/Tenancy-condition-report.pdf 3.
Request a 4-week loan of rent from the tenant. If you receive it, make sure the tenant provides a receipt and is also signed a Bond Lodgement form, available at any NSW service centre (formerly RTAs) or Fair Trade Office or by phone at 13 32 20. It`s important. They must offer you the opportunity to use online rental bonds, Fair Trading`s secure online service, to manage and repay bond funds in a simple and direct way with Fair Trading. 4. Place the loan within 10 days with Service NSW by placing it in or hosting an NSW Service Center. You can request the release of funds to cover the damage or if the tenant breaks the lease or suspends the payment of the rent.

Bonds can also be submitted online if you register – www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/housing-and-property/renting/rental-bonds-online/for-self-managing-landlords If the tenant and landlord want the contract to be legal and official, the rental agreement must be signed.
It confirms all the points negotiated by the parties and determines the length of time the property is occupied. Everything in the contract must be in compliance with the law, otherwise the contract is not valid. The owner/agent can only charge one fee at a time. If you receive a participation fee, you cannot enter into a contract with another potential tenant for 7 days (or more if you accept both). The landlord/broker or lease cannot require you to pay more than 2 weeks` rent in advance (you can pay more). They cannot ask for another rent until it expires and they cannot prescribe a cheque. A common situation is that the tenant has exclusive ownership of his own bedroom and sharing kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The description in the agreement of the portions of the tenant`s property and the non-exclusive property guarantees the rights and obligations of all parties.
When the tenant rents a room in an apartment building, it is very important that the agreement details which parts of the premises the tenant owns exclusively and which parts of the tenant shared.
