Paying Rent

Securing the Property – Initial Payment

Once the application has been approved, you will be required to pay a minimum of at least 50% bond to secure the property. Please note that this must be paid in clear funds (money order, bank cheque, credit card or electronic transfer if time permits). The property will not be secured for you until this money has been received and all parties have signed the tenancy related documents.

Payment of Rent & Bond

Prior to taking possession of the property, we require 2 weeks rent and bond (equivalent to 4 weeks rent, unless your weekly rent is $700 or over in which case the bond requirement may vary). This office does not accept bond transfers. All monies must be paid in clear funds prior to collecting the keys.

Payment of Rent

It is our company policy that all rental payments are to be made electronically throughout your tenancy. We offer several forms of payment methods:-

  • RE/MAX Max Card (refer to www.maxcard.net.au for assorted electronic methods including B-Pay, POSTBillpay and direct deposit of payment and associated fees)
  • Credit card transactions (attract a merchant fee of 1.36%)
  • Bank Cheque

Please note: You will need to enquire with your bank or financial institution to determine any additional fees associated with your preferred payment method.
