Renting in Australia - House Maintenance & Alterations

Most rental accommodation in Australia is rented through a Real Estate Agency!
A Real Estate Agency does not own the property but acts on behalf of the owner by employing a manager of the property, called a Property Manager, to organise the new tenants, ensure all the paperwork and legal documents are taken care of, arrange regular property inspections and organise for any problems with the property to be fixed.

Renting in Australia – House Maintenance & Alterations

In Australia the tenant is not responsible for paying to fix most problems within the property such as a faulty oven or leaking toilet cistern, but small things like changing light bulbs and fitting new tap washers are the responsibility of the tenant.

You cannot make any alterations or additions to the property without the prior written consent of the owner of the property. This means if you want to paint a room a different colour you need to first contact your Property Manager and they will ask the owners of the property.
