Paying Your Rent On Time
It is highly important that you pay your rent on time as failure to do so can result in negative credit references and problems renting from other landlords in the future.
We recommend you set up an Automatic Payment with payment to leave your account a day, or even two before the rent is due to make sure that it arrives on time.
If you have any problems with your rent payments, please notify us immediately. If you fall into arrears, application will be made to the Tenancy tribunal for termination of your tenancy and your debt may be lodged with credit agencies and any other tenancy related database.
During your tenancy, we will conduct routine inspections, you will be given notice in writing to advise of the inspection date. Inspections are carried out between 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. You are welcome to be present for the inspection; however we will use office keys to gain access if required. If the nominated inspection date is not suitable for you, please contact our office as soon as possible as we will be happy to negotiate an alternative date.
The owner(s) insurance does not cover your personal belongings, therefore we strongly advise you take out your own contents insurance to ensure your belongings are insured from any unforeseen circumstances.
Leaving A Nest Property
Your Tenancy Agreement states you are required to give at least 28 days notice if you intend to vacate one of our properties and that you must include the final date of your tenancy.
To notify Nest Property of your intention please email your property manager to request A Notice to Terminate Tenancy form and return it to us via email.
Final Inspection Checklist
You will find our Final Inspection Checklist to assist you in preparing for your vacate inspection, which will also ensure prompt lodgement of your bond refund.
