Once you have been approved to be a tenant you may need to connect your utilities (check with your property manager as each property is different!)

Electricity: Synergy 13 13 53
Gas: Alinta 13 13 58

A water account for your water usage is slightly different. This account remains in the property owners name and you will be billed for your water usage as per the detail in your Tenancy Agreement.
You will receive an invoice for water usage and this account is due no later than 7 days from issue. This invoice forms part of your tenancy obligations and is treated and paid in the same way as your rent payments using the DEFT BPAY Payment.
Contents Insurance is very important so if anything happens at the property that damages your belongings you aren't left out of pocket to replace it. Contents insurance will cover your possessions for theft or damage at the property address during your tenancy. You should notify your insurer of your change of address. The owners building and contents insurance does not cover any of your possessions.

During your tenancy there will be up to 4 inspections per annum. The purpose of inspections is to advise the owner of any maintenance which may need attention and to report on the condition of the property. Photographs may be taken at the property as part of the inspection process. The first inspection is usually after 6 weeks, this is to make sure you have settled into the property well and to attend to any items that may need attending to as you settle into your new home. After this first inspection the schedule is usually set to every 3 months.
Preparing the property for a Tenancy inspection is an important part of the tenancy process. It provides your property manager and the owner of the property with a good indication of how you are looking after the property. The property manager will be inspecting the property for overall maintenance, cleanliness and care. This will include inspecting wet areas and kitchens for cleanliness and regular cleaning activities. Ovens and range hoods will be inspected, along with windowsills, architraves and light switches.
Gardens will be inspected and assessed.
Preparation for the property inspection should not take too long if the property has been cleaned and maintained regularly during your tenancy.
You will be notified two weeks prior to your inspection via email and text.
