For self managing landlords

Rental Bonds Online helps tenants, agents and self-managing landlords lodge and refund bond money easily and securely. It is a fast and convenient way to:

  • lodge, view and claim residential rental bonds online without having to send cheques and paper forms
  • receive email and SMS phone notifications confirming what is happening to a rental bond
  • view notifications and key tasks that require action within Rental Bonds Online

Self-managing landlords must be registered with Rental Bonds Online and offer the service to new tenants as the first option for lodgement of their bond.
