What information should I include in my listing?

You should include as much information as possible, in order to give potential tenants the best understanding of what your property is like.

Your listing needs to provide clear, accurate information on the following:

  • type of property,
  • how many rooms are vacant within the property,
  • the rental price of each room/property,
  • the size of the rooms/property,
  • whether the property is furnished or unfurnished,
  • inclusions in rental payments (e.g. utilities),
  • what payments are required prior to tenancy (e.g.bond),
  • other costs associated with the tenancy not included in the rent (e.g.cleaning, utilities, internet)
  • the length of the lease, and
  • the location of the property and details of local amenities, particularly public transport links.

Listings which include photographs will have a priority in the order of listings.

You can include as many photos as you like; this will provide potential tenants with a good understanding of the property.

I have let my room/property and want to archive the listing. How can I do that?

If you go into your listing you can chose ‘close’ and this will archive the advertisement and allow you to come back and relist it when you are ready.
