When can I collect the keys and move in?

You are welcome to collect the keys once the bond and rent in advance have been paid and the lease has commenced. Your tenancy will begin with an induction conducted by your Home Specialist Property Manager. This induction will go through:

  • The terms and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement,
  • Our policy on rental arrears,
  • Your responsibilities as a tenant, and
  • The expectations of the tenancy.

The induction will conclude with the signing of the lease.
