Hi all,

I would like to know what is the legal procedures that takes place after I have viewed an appartment or house for share and wanted to move in. Also, to whom do we have to pay the bond and the rent? is it a real estate agency or directly to the landlord?

Thanks,
Tamer Salem

Unless the landlord is managing the property themselves then the money goes to the real estate agent first. That's been our experience as landlords.

Regards,
Karen

Make sure that you get a receipt from the RTA that bond has been paid. It is the law that the real estate agency or landlord must submit the bond to this organisation.
