The Property Manager will contact you to organise a time to complete the documentation.
All residential properties must use a prescribed ‘Residential Tenancy Agreement’ which highlights the rights and responsibilities of both the tenants and owners. It is a long and detailed document so remember to allow enough time to understand and complete the lease documents as you are entering into a legal commitment.
If you don’t understand something make sure that you ask for clarification and do not sign anything until you are satisfied that you understand all the terms. You will receive a copy of the lease documents after they are signed and can start planning for the big move.
Important – The owners' insurance does not usually cover your personal possessions, even if a problem with the property caused the damage, so make sure that you have contents insurance. It is not very expensive and worth it’s weight in gold if you ever need it!!
Notify all the relevant authorities of your change of address. Also, organise your electricity, telephone, gas, internet and removalists.
