Collecting and lodging bond

If you've never lodged a rental bond before it might sound difficult or unnecessary. But it's not too hard to do and it gives you certain protections as a landlord.

Importantly, the RTA (Residential Tenancy Authority) requires that you lodge any bond you collect within 10 days and it is an offence not to do so. So we've made it a requirement of listing with UniRentals that you agree to do so.

Of course, if you don't collect a bond then you don't have to lodge it.

The quickest way to lodge bond is to use the RTA's Web Services portal. You will need to register first if you haven't already done so.
