You can transfer all or part of your bond from one tenancy to another if everyone agrees – including your existing and your new lessor, agent or provider. You cannot transfer a bond if the lessor, agent or provider is claiming part of the bond or if you still owe money for a Bond Loan.
To transfer the bond, complete a Transfer of Bond form and send it to the RTA. The Transfer of Bond form must be signed by everyone who is registered with the RTA as a party to the bond. You will need to sign a Bond Lodgement form with your new lessor or provider, and indicate on the Bond Lodgement form that the bond is being transfered from a previous agreement.
