The bond

A rental bond provides financial protection should there be a breach in a tenancy agreement.

Waikato Real Estate requires 4 weeks bond from tenants. An additional 2 weeks rent is also required in advance of your tenancy starting.

Your rental bond is independently held in trust with the Residential Tenancy Bond Authority as security against any damage to the property, outstanding accounts or rent arrears, and undue wear and tear.

Once all conditions of the tenancy have been met, your bond is refunded promptly at the end of your tenancy.
