Frequently Asked Questions- Tenants


How often will Tamworth City Real Estate carry out inspections?

As a rule of thumb, we’ll inspect a property every 3 months. So if you’re on a 6-month lease, you’ll likely have one inspection, and if you signed a 12-month lease, expect three inspections.

In any case, we’ll give you plenty of notice advising when we’ll inspect. We strongly suggest you to be there, but it’s not necessary.


What penalties will I incur should I break my lease agreement early?

You’ll be responsible for continuing to pay rent until your lease expiry or until a new tenant can be found.


How long will it take to process my application?

In most cases we will process your application within 48 hours.


How can I pay my rent?

Our office is a cash free office therefore we will provide you with our Trust Account details for you to set up direct deposit into our account or you also have the option to retrieve a deposit book and pay directly into our Trust Account at our preferred bank.


Can I have a pet?

In most cases, pets are considered on application. It’s important to consider the suitability of each pet on a case-by-case basis as obviously some pets are more compatible with certain types of properties. Ultimately, the property owner will have the final say as to whether or not your application will be approved with your pets.


Can another person move in with me?

You must seek permission to add people to your lease. Additional tenants will have to complete our application process and sign onto the lease. We may refuse your request if the property is unsuitable for an additional person, or the person you are proposing does not meet our eligibility criteria.
