    Default Rental cooling off period?

    If you apply and are accepted for a rental property, what is the cooling off period before being locked into the contract?

    Thanks x

    I thought your not locked in until contracts are signed and you get keys.
    You can say no at any time before that.

    Also do you know if you can apply online without having seen the property? (If there's the apply online function on the ad)

    You can apply online without having seen it - we did that when we first moved to Sydney. However, at the inspections all the agents said they ignored the online applications that came through Domain etc. I don't know how they would treat it if you emailed them all the relevant documents directly?

    Yay did you find something?
    We don't accept applications until you have seen it - bringing a filled in one to an inspection is the best idea!

    Once you have been accepted we ask for a deposit ( terms should be in the application) usually 1 weeks rent ( which turns into your first weeks rent) you can change your mind any time before you sign the lease or you will lose the amount of deposit that has been held

    Found the most gorgeous place in Marrickville and called the agent and she said she'd list an inspection time when they found one that suited existing tenants (they leave in 2 weeks).

    However it's not the first time I've loved a property and then it's unlisted before the first inspection time, so I thought if we applied online beforehand at least it shows we're interested? Would happily fill out one before inspection too, but want to get my foot in the door.

    I REALLY want this place. Seems like the hardest part is making it to that initial inspection though?

    The application was through that click2rent website.

    Elijah's mum - do I need to do anything else?

    Suck up to the agent!
    I'd be filling out the application and dropping it in to the office personally ( or even better get DP to do it in her uniform!)
    It helps if the property managers know who you are, these days they get tons of emails and forget who is who so go in and introduce yourselves, tell them you want the house and have pre filled in the application and that you can inspect whenever she can get you in!

    Yes! So gotta get DP to do it in her uniform.

    Won't I have to go in to get the application form anyway?
