RentEzy only advertises rental properties. All properties are for rent. If you want to advertise a commercial property for lease or sale go to LeaseEzy.com.au. If you want to advertise a residential property for sale go to SellEzy.com.au.

Four status options are available

It is the responsibility of the advertiser (property owner, property manager, agent or tenant breaking a lease) to edit the status of the rental property advertisement when it is rented. To do this go to My Properties.

Rental wanted advertisements should be deleted when they are no longer required. This can be done in My Properties.
