    Looking for a detailed tenant agreements,have looked on the RTA website not much luck.

    As the people moving out of my rental have put heaps of picture hooks on walls.Never asked me,want to know if I can do anything about that & some other things.

    Hi Steve

    Which state is it for?

    In ACT and NSW you can grab them from your local newsagent – and I think they can also be downloaded.

    It sounds like you're referring to the condition report which is usually at the back of the lease agreement.

    Cheers

    You have to refer back to your original lease and inspection reports (no point downloading a lease which the tenant hasn't signed). Your rights are limited to deducting the cost of making good the damage. The next tenant will probably do exactly the same thing if you remove the hooks.

    Jamie, it has been years since you had to buy leases from the Newsagent in NSW, only downloadable or direct from fairtrading.nsw.gov.au website.

    lol – that explains why my wife is in charge of managing them. I don't even know where to get a lease from.

    I went to the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) website and found a section where you can download the forms.  The form for General Tenancy Agreement is Form 18A.  I have attached the website link for you which shows all the relevant forms which you may find useful.  http://www.rta.qld.gov.au/Resources/Forms/Forms-for-general-tenancies

    Well found the lady who had rented house is manager of that real estate.Basically filled out want she wanted & we weren't sent a copy of it.

    Spoke to new person looking after house & was told they can put things on walls but only had to patch & not paint walls.Doesn't seem right that.Going to look into that.

    I'm glad they are out,just getting some things fixed which is coming from there bond,& treating it as a steep learning curve.

    Thanks Steve

    In QLD they have to patch and paint wall. Most PM's don't let the tenant get away with this one.
