  • Closed Rental Bonds in May ‘22 were 13.6% down on May ‘21 and New bonds lodged in the month were similarly down 13.7%. These declines suggest a level of tenant immobility likely resulting from recent increases in rental prices and also cost of living.

  • The data above is an analysis of data from Tenancy Services Bond Database.
  • Lodgements are attributed to the month the tenancy commences not when the bond is lodged.
  • Landlords have 23 working days to lodge a bond with Tenancy Services, the bond lodgements are then processed which may take 10-15 working days.
  • Tenancy Services releases the data from their bond database approximately a month and a half after the end of the period.
  • There can be a couple of months delay in landlords lodging or withrawing bonds so the data can change over the subsequent 2-3 months.

* Brightr applies an adjustment factor to the most recent 3 months data reflecting an established pattern of delayed lodgements and closed bonds.
