Private rentals: FAQs for renters
What is a private rental in Australia?
A private rental is a rental property that is leased directly through the property owner, landlord, or another tenant. Private rentals include a whole range of property types, including houses, apartments, units, and granny flats.
How do I find a private landlord for a property?
The best way to find a private landlord for a property is to visit a reputable rental portal such as RentEzy.
Avoid using social media networks and classifieds to find a privately managed rental property, as you could end up in a poorly cared for property with no official, government-regulated paperwork to support and protect you.
Can you rent a house without a lease?
In Australia, most states require private landlords to supply written tenancy agreements.
If you are renting a privately managed property without a lease, be cautious – this could be against the law. Leases set out by state rental authorities are designed to protect the interests of both renters and rental providers. Without a lease, things like requesting maintenance and repairs and securing your bond after your tenancy can be challenging.
What is the best website to find houses to rent?
Use the customisable search functions to narrow down available properties, search by maps, and even save your searches and get notified when a new suitable rental hits the market.
How do I find a good rental?
Find a good rental property by creating a priority list. Consider things like location, price, and the number of bedrooms. Don’t forget special features like being pet-friendly, too. Then, use these criteria to find a rental property that meets your specific needs.

How do you rent by owner?
