Title: Bond payments and refunds (Links to English resource)
Summary: A bond is a sum of money that is usually paid to the landlord or their real estate agent at the start of your tenancy. It is held by the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority, which means that it’s your money and doesn’t belong to the landlord or agent. At the end of your tenancy the landlord may try and claim some or all of your bond as compensation for any damage to the property, for cleaning or for unpaid rent.
