Residential Tenancy Agreement TAS
In Tasmania, there is no requirement to have a written agreement in place for leases that are less than 5 years. It is however recommended that all leases are formalised in writing.
When offering a written tenancy agreement to a tenant in Tasmania, you will need to give them an unsigned copy of the lease for them to read and sign.
The standard components of a written lease in Tasmania are:
1. Total rent amount and terms of payment.
2. Total bond amount.
3. The term of the lease.
4. Agreed conditions and rules.
5. Any specific terms that the landlord and tenant have agreed upon.
When renting out your property privately in Tasmania there are also other factors to consider such as condition reports, price increases, bond lodgement and tenant rights which are specific to Victoria.
