Any bond a landlord takes from a tenant must be lodged with Tenancy Services within 23 working days of receiving the payment.
A bond cannot be more than 4 weeks rent, but it is totally okay not to charge a bond or charge less than 4 weeks.
Bonds can be lodged via the Tenancy Services website (you will need a PDF of the bond lodgement form) or via cheque mailed to Tenancy Services.
For more help contact the Housing Advice Centre 06 358 4875 or Tenancy Services 0800 TENANCY
