Tenant Obligations

Conditions of tenancy

  • Tenants are required to have insurance in place at all times for their personal effects and belongings.
  • The keeping of companion pet animals is restricted to a de-sexed cat or caged bird only. Dogs are not permitted. Pets allowed under this policy is conditional on the tenants agreeing to the rules as set by Council officers.
  • Smoking in the units is not permitted.
  • Damage caused by the installation of heat pumps or other personal items in units must be made good in a professional manner if these items are removed at the end of the tenancy.


On the commencement of a new tenancy, rent is to be paid two weeks in advance and ongoing rental is to be paid by direct debit. Rent must remain in advance by two weeks during the length of tenancy.

This amount will be refunded to outgoing tenants if no damage has occurred during the term of their tenancy. Normal fair wear and repairs are excluded from the definition of damage.
