FINDING A RENTAL PROPERTY
Please browse our website for all properties for lease under ‘Rent’. Alternatively, rental listings are also available in our office reception at Shop 4, 1333 Ferntree Gully Road, Scoresby VIC 3179.
Inspections can be arranged with Grandstand by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting us at 9763 3288 once you have found your ideal rental property. We will then contact you to advise or organise a suitable inspection time.
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing your ideal property. These may include the following factors:
- Rental amount to be paid;
- Type of property (i.e apartment, unit/townhouse, house);
- The size of property;
- Lease preferences (i.e lease commencement date and length of lease); and
- Location (great neighborhood, school, public transport, amenities and convenience).

RENTAL APPLICATION PROCESS & WHEN YOUR APPLICATION IS APPROVED
RENTAL APPLICATION PROCESS
- Once your tenancy application form is received, it will be processed by Grandstand Real Estate rental department. We may ask for more information or documents to be provided (if application form or document is incomplete).
- We will refer all applications to the landlord for their instructions and approval.
- You will then be contacted by Grandstand Real Estate rental department and be advised of the outcome.
WHEN YOUR APPLICATION IS APPROVED
Once your application is approved you will need to sign the tenancy agreement, pay the bond and the first rental payment. Your bond will be lodged with the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA) to be held as a security deposit. The bond will be paid back to you when the property is vacated provided no money is owed for rent, damages or other costs.
You will also be provided with a booklet – ‘Renting a home, a guide for tenants‘ from Consumer Affairs Victoria which include all essential information for your tenancy.
INSPECTIONS DURING YOUR TENANCY
Upon the commencement of your lease we will conduct an inspection and provide two copies of condition reports which outline the general condition of your rental property. You are required to check that each item on the condition report is reported accurately and return one copy to us within three business days of moving in.
Regular inspections will be carry out by Grandstand Real Estate rental department and you will be notified in advance of the inspection times. We will carry out an inspection of the property every six months, commencing on the third month of a new tenancy.
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE
We will attend to all maintenance and repairs as quickly as reported as per the management agreement.
If you need to report an urgent maintenance or issue, please contact our rental department by phone or email. Your first contact to organise the repairs must be to our office. If you are not getting a prompt response, you can authorise the repair for up to $1800. You can then ask for the payment and cost of the urgent repairs by giving a notice to us. Please note if the repair is caused by your action, whether intentional or accidental, you will be liable for the cost of repairs.

AT THE END OF YOUR TENANCY
At the end of your tenancy you must give a valid notice to vacate in writing if you are planning to leave. Even if a tenancy has a fixed end date, notice must be given to end it. You must pay any outstanding rent, take all your belongings and clean the property prior to vacating the property.
If you have a fixed-term agreement but wish to end your lease early, you should give a written notice as soon as possible. Breaking a tenancy agreement may require you to pay compensation to your landlord.
Rights and Duties of Renter
New rental laws came into effect on 29 March 2021.
The law changes expand the rights and responsibilities of renters and rental providers (landlords) and will make renting in Victoria fairer and safer.
The changes span the lifecycle of a rental agreement – from before you sign a rental agreement until after the agreement ends. You can learn more about all of them with our summaries of all the new laws below. The summaries have been categorized to make it easier for you to learn about the changes that affect you.
