If you are a sub-tenant renting from the head tenant, the head tenant can charge you a bond for your tenancy.

The head tenant has the same responsibilities as a lessor and is required to give you a receipt, complete a Bond Lodgement form with you, and lodge the bond with the RTA within 10 days of receiving it.

The parties to this bond will be the head tenant and the sub-tenant. The head tenant has all the other obligations of a lessor, including giving you a written agreement.
