Lodging a bond correctly is one of the most important initial steps in any tenancy. Getting it right prevents many problems and disputes arising later on. myRent makes payment and lodgement of the bond with Tenancy Services as easy as possible by providing all the resources and instructions you'll need.

What are the benefits?

1. Information and Instructions

myRent provides landlords and tenants with a simple, step-by-step process to pay and lodge a bond. We outline all the key legal and practical information in an easily-understood way for both tenants and landlords at every step of the process.

2. Access to Documents and Resources

myRent gives you direct access to all the key resources and documents you'll need to pay and lodge a bond - this includes the legally-required bond lodgement forms. myRent's secure document storage also gives you 24/7 access to all the bond documents and forms - this is important for reference, especially at the end of the tenancy.

3. Electronic Signatures

myRent gives you the option to use electronic signatures on bond lodgement forms - this saves the hassle of printing and rescanning documents while allowing the tenancy process to be made paperless and secure.

How does it work?

myRent streamlines paying and lodging bonds with a simple 5 step process.

1. myRent pre-fills bond lodgement forms

myRent saves you time by completing the bond lodgement forms for you with the information you’ve already provided to us.

You can review this information to make sure it’s correct.

2. myRent guides landlords through providing extra details and electronic signatures

As a landlord, you’ll need to provide some more information to complete your bond lodgement form. myRent guides you through a few additional steps.

You can then electronically sign the bond lodgement form. myRent then notifies your tenants that they need to complete their part of the form and pay the bond.

3. myRent helps tenants pay their contribution to the bond separately

Tenants decide how much they each contribute to the bond. They can then pay their own contribution to myRent.

4. myRent guides tenants through providing extra details, electronic signatures, and paying the bond

myRent then guides tenants through the extra information required to complete the bond lodgement form.

Tenants can electronically sign the bond lodgement form, and have the option of paying their contribution by credit card, debit card, or bank transfer.

myRent provides tenants with a receipt for their bond contributions.

5. myRent lodges the bond with Tenancy Services

Once all the tenants have completed the bond lodgement form and paid their contribution of the bond, myRent will lodge the form and the bond with Tenancy Services.

Both landlord and tenants should then receive an email receipt from Tenancy Services for their bond.

What if I’ve already lodged the bond?

If you’ve already lodged a bond, no worries! You can upload your bond lodgement forms or receipt to your myRent dashboard for safe-keeping.
