Paying your rent
Your rent is always payable in advance. If you are paying weekly, it should be one week in advance, if fortnightly - 2 weeks in advance, etc. We highly recommend setting up an automatic payment with your bank as soon as possible once the tenancy has started.
If, for any reason, you are not able to make your rent payment by the due date, contact our office immediately.
If you get behind in your rent, we will issue a breach notice to you, and if the breach is not rectified within 14 days, we may have no alternative but to take action to terminate your tenancy.
Services & Utilities
At the beginning of your tenancy, it’s up to you to have the electricity, gas and telephone connected and transferred to your name.
When you leave, it is your responsibility to arrange final meter readings and disconnection of these services as well as a having your mail re-directed to your new address.

Lawn & Garden Maintenance
Unless stated as a special condition in your Tenancy Agreement, all lawns and gardens are your responsibility. We have some preferred contractors that we can recommend if you want to employ a helping hand.
We inspect all the rental properties under our management every three months during a tenancy. Tenants are given written notice before a routine inspection.
We ask you to present your home in a clean and tidy condition as we do photograph the property and send photos and a report to the owner.
This is a great time to let us know of any repairs and maintenance that might need to be done, and to check your smoke alarm batteries.
