When you move in to your new place, there are some basic responsibilities that you need to be aware of. The most important is paying your rent on time.  Rent under your Tenancy Agreement is always paid two weeks in advance. If at any time you are unable to make a rental payment, on or before the due date, please make immediate contact with our office. All rental payments must be made as per the nominated method when you signed the General Tenancy Agreement. Our preferred payment method is by direct debit on the first day of every month.

 

How to Pay Your Rent

 

  At the Bank: deposit cash or cheque or transfer funds into our bank account.

 

 Direct Debit: you can pay direct into the bank account specified. You can do this manually or set-up a regular payment. If you have access to online banking this is simple to do and it keeps a good record for you.

 

How to Make Sure the Rent Gets Paid!

The lease that was signed for rental of the property is a contractual document. This must be taken seriously. Make sure everyone in the house understands that 'paying the rent on time is important'. The people whose names are on the lease are ultimately responsible for the rent and lease conditions. You may be paying equal shares or an agreed split of the total rent, either way make it clear to everyone contributing how much is due and when it is due by.

 

Paying on behalf of a Group

One person in the house should be nominated as responsible for collecting rent from each of you, and they make payment. You can collect the rent a number of ways, from the old fashioned 'cash in the rent jar' or get payments made to a nominated bank account whether it be somebody's own or a separate 'rent account' (note that some banks provide 'fee free' accounts, on which you can put all names on the account. It's wise to make 2 signatures to the account for withdrawal).

 

The best way is to set-up an automatic transfer into the account. Whichever way you choose, keep good records and follow up immediately on anyone that has missed a payment. Make payments regularly and it's a good idea to do so when you get paid, the last thing you want is to get to rent day and have no money left. If you miss a rent payment or can't pay all of it, communicate the circumstances quickly and honestly to your property manager.
