5 Ways To Grow Your Rent Roll
When you first start your own Rent Roll, you’ll be taking money from tenants to pay their bond. It’s really important that you know where to put this money so you don’t get into trouble at your annual trust account audit.
In NSW, the bond is to be lodged with Fair Trading. Previously, this was completed using a paper form and a cheque or money order, but now agents can register for the Rental Bonds Online (RBO) service and lodge their rental bonds electronically. This opens up additional methods for the tenant to pay their bond, including Mastercard, Visa and Bpay.
The old paper based form can still be used for tenants who are unable to pay their bond using these electronic methods, and you cannot force a tenant to pay their bond electronically.
Remember, agents have 10 working days from the end of each month to lodge all bonds received in that month.
