Finding the right rental property can seem like a lengthy and often daunting process. At Nidus Group Real Estate, we are here to help every step of the way, from viewing the property to vacating the property, to ensure you have a positive experience as a Nidus Group tenant.
Rental payments – you are required under the Act to pay rent in accordance with your lease agreement. This means your rent should be paid in advance at all times. Late rental payments are a breach of your agreement and can result in the termination of the lease. If you are experiencing difficulty in paying rent on time, contact your property manager and advise of your situation. It is important to communicate regularly with your property manager and in certain circumstances, payment arrangements can be made.
Property Condition – each tenant is provided with an ingoing condition report and photos of the property on signing the lease agreement allowing you to agree, disagree and list any other relevant information relating to the condition of the property. You are requied to sign and return a copy of this to your property manager within 7 days of signing your lease. This is one of the most important documents you will receive. At the end of your tenancy, a final inspection will be completed, comparing the property condition to that of the ingoing condition report. The tenant is not permitted to alter the property in any way without the consent of the landlord. Throughout the tenancy, it is the tenants responsibility to ensure the property is kept clean and tidy both inside and outside and that no damage occurs. Your property manager will carry out regular inspections and report back to the landlord on the property condition.
Repairs & Maintenance – Tenants have a duty of care to the landlord of reporting any maintenance issues or repairs that may arise during the tenancy. These repairs and maintenance must be submitted in writing to your property manager as soon as possible for authorisation from the landlord.
Urgent Repairs – tenants must make a considerable and immediate attempt to advise the property manager of any urgent or emergency repairs. If no contact can be made, the tenant may engage a qualified tradesperson to attend to the repair. (Refer to your lease agreement for emergency contacts and policies relating to reimbursement of payments).
