Information for Tenants

We strive to make your renting experience easier and more enjoyable

Rental payments

As a tenant, it is your responsibility to pay your rent when it is due. If you are unable to pay your rent by the due date, you should contact Ross-Hunt Property Manager as soon as possible.

Please remember that the owner of your property has financial commitments to meet and relies on your rent being paid on time.

Ross-Hunt prefers direct debit as your method of payment and in the case of co-tenants, the rent should be debited from one bank account, Should you change banking arrangements you must notify Ross-Hunt in writing so that the necessary changes can be made.

 Routine inspections

Ross-Hunt will carry out routine inspections on the property to ascertain the condition of the property and necessary maintenance requirements. You will be given adequate notice before any inspection is conducted.

Property repairs and maintenance

You must notify your property manager of any damage or repairs that may be required at the property.  You must always contact the office first to organise repairs. If a tradesman is required to attend the property, a suitable time will be arranged between you and the tradesman. If you are not at home at the agreed time, you will incur the standard service call for the tradesman attending the property.

What to do if you are locked out of your rental property

Should you find yourself locked out of the property you may contact Ross-Hunt’s to see if a spare key is available.  We are only able to give keys to tenants listed on the tenancy agreement.  Photo identification must be produced along with a $50 deposit.  Keys must be returned to our office on the same day.

Giving notice to vacate

When giving notice you must do so in writing to your Property Manager.  The notice is not effective until it is received in writing at Ross-Hunt’s office.

Contents Insurance

It is Ross-Hunt’s standard recommendation for you to take out content insurance for your belongings.  The landlord’s insurance does not cover your belongings.
