Rental start dates

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Hubby and I are trying to sort out when to arrive in Canberra.

We were thinking end of September and then we would give ourselves a couple of weeks to find a rental property.

However we realised that then we would be looking to rent a property middle of the month?

Question is ...... Do most rentals start at the beginning of the month? Should we then come mid sept to find a place from the 1 st Oct?

Thanks again

Rentals have no correlation to beginning, middle or end of month. People are paid fortnightly mostly so there isnt that sense of beginning and end of month like in South Africa. When you arrive you arrive, there will be rentals immediately available, some may only be ready in a month's time - it all varies. Basically if you see a place you like and it is immediately available they ask you on the application when you want to move in and then after they have done all their checks and you are the preferred tenant then you are ready to move in on your selected date.

As above - we selected the date we wanted to move in and it is the middle of the month.

Ditto the above. Except that we wanted our house so badly that we started paying a week before our stuff arrived.

I agree our house only became available on 12 April

Nope, you definitely don't need to plan around month-end here. We moved into our place on a Tuesday in the second week of the month. And that's the same for Sydney and Brisbane, so assume it's country-wide.

Book your flights according to when is cheapest and most convenient for your departure as it won't matter when you arrive as far as rentals are concerned.

We stayed in a furnished apartment in Reid http://www.stayz.com.au/73786 until we found a more permanent home. Moved in to the furnished apartment on the 10th and into the more permanent one on the 26th.

I would highly recommend the apartment in Reid, Mechelle and Jamie were superb and even had a welcome basket for us with home made bread and toys for our kids.
