    I haven't rented for years, but when I did, I thought it was 2weeks rent in advance and 4 weeks bond.

    Sometimes it depends where you live. In my experience, some landlords ask for 4 weeks rent in advance + bond (equivalent of 4 weeks rent) so 8 weeks all up.
    If a landlord or real estate is asking for anymore than that, check the residential tenancies legislation in your state

    In VIC you pay a bond of 1 month + 1 month rental for the first month and that's it.
