You knew this was coming — it’s time to fork out the cash.
Two weeks’ worth of advanced rent (plus GST) will need to be paid as a deposit to secure your apartment. This amount is non-refundable, but will subsequently go towards your initial rent payment. Take note that if you change your mind and cancel your booking, you will essentially forfeit this deposit which will serve as a cancellation fee.
Don’t worry about how to make your payment, as we’ll provide you with clear instructions on the entire process. If all goes well and your payment is successfully processed, you will receive a booking confirmation via email.
We know that we live in uncertain times, where travel restrictions can change when you least expect it. That is why here at Y Suites, we have a flexible booking policy so you can book your rooms stress-free! If you are unable to travel to Australia, we can defer your booking for free until restrictions are lifted, after which we will offer up to 30 days for you to commence your lease at Y Suites. Still can’t arrive within 30 days? Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see how we can help.
Alternatively, if you choose to withdraw from your studies in Australia, simply send us your letter of withdrawal within three days and we’ll refund you in full. Contact us any time if you’d like to know more about our booking policy!
The name’s bond… Rental bond.
Bond payment must be submitted in advance and received by us at least three days before your check-in arrival date. The bond amount consists of a certain number of weeks’ worth of rent, which depends on the type of room you’ve chosen. Our property staff will help you lodge the bond on your behalf with the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA), so all you need to provide on your end is the completed bond lodgement form and bond amount.
As with all rental apartment bonds, the amount may be refunded at the end of your lease, subject to deductions for room damages.
Last but not least, ensure that you have all the necessary documents ready with you prior to check-in. These include your passport, confirmation of enrolment (CoE) and student visa.
And with that, you’re done! With your dream student pad secured, If you have any questions about how to book Y Suites’ Adelaide and Melbourne student accommodations, feel free to contact us — we’re more than happy to help you get started.
