We have already done this for several other students’ in the past. In this instance we ask you to arrange a bank transfer/deposit the security (bond) and rent into our account in advance, provide a signed copy of the contract (sign, scan and email back to us a copy) and then we will stop advertising the room and you would have secured it.
Rent starts at the time that you make the booking and this secures you the room so you can be sure that it is clean, comfortable and waiting only for you. The deposit is non refundable, if you choose to reserve a room and then change your mind for whatever reason.
The contract stipulates the terms and conditions, length of contract and stipulates your rights under Australian law.
