9. As a tenant, what documents should I expect to receive before I move into a property?

The documentation you receive at the beginning of a tenancy include a copy of the tenancy agreement, information about renting in your state, a copy of the bond lodgement form and the condition report, which is to be completed, signed and returned to the agent or owner within the required time frame.

You may also receive a receipt for the initial rent amount and bond payment, as well as copies of access keys and any remote controls. The landlord/property manager may also provide you with emergency contact details for urgent out-of-hours repairs.
