Missing a rent payment is a breach of your tenancy agreement and the Residential Tenancies Act. It can result in negative credit references and problems renting from other landlords in the future.

We recommend you set up an Automatic Payment with payment to leave your bank account a day or two before the rent is due to make sure that it arrives on time.

If you have any problems with your rent payments, please notify us immediately. If you fall into arrears, application will be made to the Tenancy Tribunal for termination of your tenancy. Your debt may be lodged with credit agencies and any other tenancy related database.

Property inspections benefit both landlord and tenant as they help ensure that all parties are adhering to the tenancy agreement. During your tenancy, therefore, we will conduct routine inspections.

You will be given advance notice in writing advising of the inspection date. Inspections are carried out between 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. You are welcome to be present for the inspection; however we will use office keys to gain access if required. If the nominated inspection date is not suitable for you, please contact our office as soon as possible as we will be happy to negotiate an alternative date.

The property owner’s insurance does not cover your personal belongings, therefore we strongly advise you take out your own contents insurance to ensure your belongings are insured from any unforeseen circumstances.

Your Tenancy Agreement states you are required to give at least 28 days’ notice if you intend to vacate one of our properties and that you must include the final date of your tenancy.

To notify Nest of your intention to vacate, please email your property manager to request a ‘Notice to Terminate Tenancy’ form and return it to us via email. You can also find a copy of this form in the Tenant Portal.

To prepare for your final vacate inspection, please refer to our ‘Final Inspection Checklist’, which you can find in the Tenant Portal. It will help you prepare for your vacate inspection, which will also ensure prompt lodgement of your bond refund.
