Rent, bond and other costs
This section explains:
- rent, including how much rent you can be charged in advance and when you might be able to challenge the rent as being too high
- bond, including how much your landlord can charge and what happens to this money once you pay it
- the kinds of fees that your landlord isn’t allowed to charge you for, like letting fees or lawyers fees.
Note: When you move in, you can be asked to pay a total of two weeks’ rent in advance plus a bond equal to four weeks’ rent.
