Selection of Tenant
We take the selection of tenants seriously at Melbourne Residential Property Management.

The payment of your bond will be lodged with the Residential Tenancy Bond Authority (RTBA).
The bond will then be electronically lodged via the RTBA online system. You will receive a link via email, which you will then need to confirm for your bond to be lodged with the RTBA. Please click here for your reference, which clarifies this process.
Upon vacating the property the bond will be refunded subject to the property being left in a clean and orderly manner with no damage or outstanding rent.
We have implemented DEFT payments system, this is a quick convenient and easy way to pay your rent any time of day or night.
You will be allocated a personal reference number upon approval of your application. Please note upon signing the Residential Tenancy Agreement this bounds you to a legal obligation to pay your rent one month in advance.
If for whatever reason you are unable to pay the rent on the due date please contact our office immediately.
The condition report 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.
Hence it is vitally important you are thorough when completing it as it may be referred to if a dispute arises at the end of the tenancy and affect the return of your bond.
You have five (5) working days after the commencement of your tenancy to complete and return it to our office. Your failure to return the condition report will forfeit your right to object if there is a dispute at the end of the tenancy.
