Let’s say that you’re thinking about renting a place. You’ve called an agent, viewed a couple of places and found one that you can actually imagine yourself staying in. What do you have to pay?
Generally, your first payments would include:
- A security deposit equalling a month’s rent
- One month’s advance rent
- Agent commission, which is half a month’s rent including GST
