Bond lodgement (Form 2)

The Bond lodgement should be used when:

  • lodging a full bond
  • paying off the bond, or
  • increasing the bond (weekly rent increases)

Filling out the form

Only tenants who have contributed to the bond and the property manager/owner should fill out this form.


The property manager/owner must lodge all rental bonds with the RTA within 10 days. It is an offence not to do so and may result in a financial penalty.

The RTA will issue an Acknowledgement of rental bond to everyone listed on the bond to confirm lodgement.
