Be careful with tenants who ask to bond transfer from their current tenancy. Landlords and Property managers should be aware that being presented with a Bond Transfer form, does not automatically mean that the funds referred to will be transferred to them. The bond may get used for arrears or repairs after the tenant has moved on meaning there is no bond to transfer. Check with the previous landlord to see if they're going to release the bond. The concept of Bond transfers is to enable a Tenancy Bond to be transferred without the necessity or inconvenience of a refund followed by a relodgement. It also benefits MBIE bond centre with less admin and the money stays in the bond fund for longer periods. Here is a link to MBIE Bond Transfer Form
