Rental Bond Information

Teacher Housing is required to charge a Rental Bond in accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act 2010. A Rental Bond is charged to all tenants residing in a property owned or managed by Teacher Housing.

  • You will be required to pay four (4) weeks of the market rent of your property as bond at the commencement of your tenancy.
  • Payment of the rental bond is by bank cheque or money order only
  • Permanent and Temporary Teachers appointed longer than one term can elect to pay their bond by salary deduction over a maximum of four (4) fortnightly instalments
  • Casual teachers must make arrangements to pay their bond in one lump sum directly to Teacher Housing at the time the offer of accommodation is accepted

Your bond will be lodged with the Rental Bond Board (RBB) who will issue a receipt of acknowledgment and lodgement.

Additional information and the appropriate forms will be provided at the time you have been approved for a Teacher Housing property.
