Now that you are ready to move in, there are a lot of things that you will need to manage to make your move a successful one. We’ve compiled a list of some other important things to consider when moving into your new property:
Changing Address Notifications
Don't forget to notify friends, family and important contacts such as your workplace and financial institutions of your new address. You can have your mail redirected by completing and submitting a mail redirection form at any Australia Post outlet, or request redirection of mail online at http://www.auspost.com.au
Your Contents Insurance
One important step that many tenants overlook is the need to insure their personal property from loss. The owner and property manager are not responsible for any damage or losses to tenant property. Losses due to fire, floods, power loss and other natural and man-made disasters can occur at any time, so it is your responsibility to take steps to protect yourself and your personal property and take out adequate insurance, it is crucial you have this in order. If you already have Contents insurance, don’t forget to advise your insurer of your change of address as quickly as possible.
We strongly advise all of our tenants to protect themselves and their possessions through adequate tenant contents insurance. A member from our Property Management team will be happy to assist you in finding a broker if you need guidance.
For your safety, and to protect the security of the property, we ask that tenants refrain from changing any of the locks on the property without express written permission to do so. If granted, a copy of the key should be given to us immediately.
Property Condition Report
You’ll receive the Property Condition Report at the start of your tenancy. For your benefit, it is important you go through this document thoroughly, check all the details and send it back to us within 7 days of receiving it. The final bond inspection is carried out on this report, and, should your signed copy of the report not be received, the final inspection will be based on the original report document.
