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?

The best website to find houses to rent is RentEzy. We give you access to both private rental properties in Australia and real estate managed properties.

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.

What is private rent Australia?

In Australia, private rent refers to rental properties that are leased directly with the owner, landlord, or another tenant. Private rent cuts out the middleman – that is, the real estate agent. The best private rent providers offer a lease from the state-governed rental authority.

How do you rent by owner?

You can rent by owner by searching for privately managed rental properties on a reputable rental portal, such as RentEzy.

What could go wrong with private rentals?

If your private rental provider does not supply you with a lease from your state’s rental authority, several things could go wrong. Remember, without a lease, you will have little backup in the event of a dispute.

Private rentals: FAQs for rental providers

How do I find a renter for my house?

Finding a suitable renter for your house or apartment can be a challenge. Traditionally, private landlords had two options: fork out the cash for a listing on a conventional rental advertising website or try their luck with a post on social media.

Now, private landlords can list their properties on RentEzy. Our professional, search engine optimised listings help you connect with quality renters fast.

Learn more about RentEzy’s rental advertising services for private landlords.

Do I need a license to rent my house?

No. You can manage your rental house without a license. Interestingly, around one in four Aussie landlords manage their own properties to cut costs.

How do I advertise my rental property?

The best way to advertise your private rental property is to create an online listing. Here are just some of the reasons property owners advertise with RentEzy:

  • It’s free for up to six months
  • The process is quick and easy – it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes
  • Detailed filters allow you to get found by suitable tenants fast
  • Our property listings have a professional appearance
  • Our property listings are search engine optimised

How can I select the right tenants for my private rental property?

Private landlords have the choice of who they approve to rent their premises. Here are five tips for selecting the right tenants for your property:

  1. Ask detailed screening questions
  2. Check references verbally
  3. Use a tenancy database
  4. Document everything
  5. Have a positive attitude

Read our full article, How to find good tenants, to learn more.

Am I subject to tenancy laws as a private landlord?

Yes. Rental laws differ from state-to-state, and it’s essential that you meet your legal obligations. If you’d like tailored support navigating complex rental legislation, find out more about our one-of-a-kind landlord coaching service.
