Could you guys in the "know" please tell me how you get your "lodged" bond back and how long does it take to be refunded?
If my bond has been "lodged" do i apply direct to get it refunded if i leave my rental or does my "private" landlord (not agent) apply to get it back for me?
Obviously i know the house has to be inspected first by the landlords to make sure the house is in the same state as it was when we moved in (which it is)...do they only do this "after" we move out BUT before any new tenants move in (how does this work if this happens on the same day?)Say we moved out on a Friday "WHEN" should be expect to get our bond back?
Is it normal that you move out of one rental first without your bond being refunded and move into another and have to find enough upfront for another bond?
Seems a bit unfair...is this correct?
