. If your tenant leaves or abandons your property before they sign the Bond Refund form then you have a couple of options.
If you had given them a termination order before they left, you then are able to lodge the bond refund form as a "One Party Claim" without the tenant's signature. The Bond Center will attempt to contact the tenant for 15 working days and if they do not get a response the bond will be refunded to you as per your Bond Refund form. Note that you must lodge the form within 2 months of the termination date.
If you did not give the tenant a termination order before they left your property you are obliged to use the Tenancy Tribunal to recover any monies due.

Landlord tip of the month. If you would like to share a Landlord tip we would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org . We are looking for short sharp 1 or 2 paragraph tips which will help us all. If we use your tip in a newsletter there will be a small gift in the mail in appreciation for your effort.
Firstly apologies for any inconvenience caused by the short outage we had last Friday morning. Our server hosts apologised to us for the glitch while migrating servers to a more secure environment.
Now for the tip! Do you need a current address on a previous tenant? We have an Address Alert feature on the bottom of our lodgement pages. This means you are able to load an errant tenant onto the system, then anytime another member submits a search on that tenant you will be emailed an updated address. This feature can also be turned on or off from your personal space in the 'My TINZ' menu where you can find all your previous searches and lodgements.
