- You can pay the bond once the owner or agent has completed the lodgement in MyBond. You will receive a notification when this has happened.
- The owner or agent will need your tenant ID to lodge the bond. You get a tenant ID when you register as a tenant on the MyBond portal.
- You can pay a bond as one amount, or each tenant can contribute an amount. This is called a bond contribution.
About paying a rental bond
A bond (sometimes called a security deposit) is a payment which protects the owner from any financial loss if a tenant does:
- something the lease does not allow, or
- not do something the lease states they should do.
A bond cannot be more than 4 weeks' rent and it cannot be increased during the tenancy.
You must pay a bond before you can rent a property. The money will be held until the end of the lease and then you or the property owner can claim it back.
