Step 2: Submit an Online Reservation Form – click here or on the link at the bottom of this page to complete an Online Reservation Form.
Upon receipt of your Reservation Inquiry, we will send you an application form by return e-mail, confirming the terms & conditions of your tenancy.
Rental accommodation in Queensland is administered by the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) and both tenant and landlord have certain obligations to adhere to.
Prior to paying your Holding Deposit, it is important that you read the application form carefully and also familiarise yourself with the following RTA Forms:
- RTA Form 17a – Information Booklet
- RTA Form 18a – General Tenancy Agreement
- RTA Form 2 – Bond Lodgement
Please contact us for clarification of any terms or conditions that you are not sure of.
A Holding Deposit equivalent to the RTA Bond is required to secure the booking.
The Holding Deposit can be paid by either bank transfer or by credit card (a 2% surcharge applies to credit card payments). Bank transfer is the preferred method – Payment should be addressed to Oriental Management Group Pty Ltd Trust Account, Westpac Banking Corporation, BSB 034-063 Account 438857 – quoting your name as reference. The international SWIFT code is WPACAU2S
Your booking is only confirmed once payment has been received. You will be required to pay rent from the lease start date irrespective of your arrival date. The first months rent is payable on or before your lease start date as detailed in your letter of offer. It is a good idea to send an email confirmation to us when the deposit is made. When we have confirmed receipt of the Holding Deposit, your accommodation is confirmed. If we do not receive your confirmation Holding Deposit in time and your chosen accommodation is no longer available, your deposit will be refunded in full. However, you may wish to request us to place you in an alternate style of room or keep your application on file for the current semester and hopefully be able to allocate you an apartment even if not your first choice.
