Tips for Tenants - Renting with First National Real Estate Pretti

 Before deciding to rent a property there are a few rules and regulations that you need to take into consideration.


A Residential Tenancy Agreement or 'lease' will be drawn up and is the legal contract that both you and your landlord must abide by.

Lease/tenancy agreements differ between states, so please make sure you have the documentation from your appropriate state.

Never sign a blank form if you do not understand something.  Contact the correct establishments and ask for advice.
A lease should include information such as:

  • Location of property, amount of rent, amount of bond,
  • Commencement and ending date of tenancy
  • Owners name
  • Special conditions, if any
