The Tenancy Agreement and Condition Report are legal documents and it is suggested you retain them in a safe place during your tenancy. You may need to produce them at some time in the future to establish any claim you might have.
Your lease is a written record of your tenancy agreement. This is a binding contract under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
The lease outlines:
- the amount of rent and how it is to be paid
- the length and type of tenancy
- the amount of bond required
- other conditions and rules
- any special terms agreed by the parties.
We remind you that the property has been let to those persons named on the original lease agreement (including children). If you wish to change the tenancy arrangements, you must contact our office first for prior approval from your Landlord. If approval is given, our tenancy records will be updated accordingly. Anyone else residing at a property on a permanent basis without approval is an illegal occupant and action against them through the Residential Tenancies Tribunal will be taken.
This document is as important as the lease agreement you signed as it establishes the condition of the property at the commencement of your tenancy and will be used as a comparison at the end of your tenancy as the basis on which your bond is refunded. Please check it and note down any changes you may have. You have three (3) working days after the commencement of your tenancy to complete & return it to our office.
