Before you move in
Once you have applied for a rental property and you are selected we will contact you to sign a Residential Tenancy Agreement and inform you personally of everything you need to know before you move in.
 
Move in costs
Once you have found your new home to rent you will have to pay several costs before you can move in. These costs are divided into three sections:

- Two weeks rent in advance
- Four weeks rent as bond
- Administration fee
 
Your Bond
Waldorf take four weeks rent as a bond. We lodge this money to cover any unpaid rent, damage to the property (if that damage can be shown to be the tenant’s fault) or any other claim. If the property has been properly looked after and the rent is paid in full, the tenants should get their bond money refunded after they move out.
 
Paying your rent
By law rent must be paid when it is due. Waldorf has the policy that rent must be paid one week in advance. If you are in arrears with your rent payment we will send you a 14 days notice to remedy the  breach. Please make sure you pay your rent when it is due. Setting up an automatic payment is the best option to not miss a weekly or fortnightly payment. Keep track of all your rent payments.
 
Property Inspections
Waldorf conducts minimum three routine property inspections per year on the properties. This is to inform the landlord of the state of the property and to ensure the property is kept in a good state of cleanliness by the tenant. We will serve you with a minimum of 48 hours notice before we enter the property to conduct the inspection.
 
Repairs & Maintenance
Some maintenance will be picked up during the routine inspection we carry out, further than that, as a tenant you need to tell us (the landlord agency) as soon as possible about any damage or anything that needs to be fixed. 
 
Ending your tenancy
When you would like to move out you will need to end your tenancy agreement. Ending your tenancy agreement depends per type of agreement:
 
Periodic tenancyYou need to give us 21 days notice if you are on a periodic agreement.
Fixed-term tenancy: If you are under a fixed-term tenancy you cannot end your tenancy before the fixed-term. A fixed term tenancy becomes automatically a periodic tenancy at the end of the term unless either party gives a notice that says they want the tenancy to finish at the end of the fixed term. This notice needs to be given no sooner than 90 days before the end of the fixed-term and no later than 21 days before the end of the fixed-term.
