We do not inspect the properties listed or interview the people advertising on the Rental Database. You will need to make your own enquiries about the suitability of the property, housemates and landlord.
Here are some tips to help you make a decision:
Do not pay any money until you have thoroughly inspected the property. Do not pay any money unless you are satisfied that the agreement is genuine. Make sure that you get a receipt for money paid. We strongly advise against sending money overseas. Here is some further advice about scams.
The Tenancies Branch provides key information, including in languages other than English, as well as a more detailed Information Brochure. Here are additional Housing FAQs to make your rental experience easier.
Do your best to attend an Accommodation Information Session held during UniSA's Orientation Week.
We strongly advise that you use written agreements in English. This prevents disputes about the agreement and what is included in the rent. Download a standard Residential Tenancy or Rooming House agreement.
Receipts are a legal requirement. If you are paying your rent with cash, always make sure that you get a receipt in English immediately.

It's advisable to take out contents insurance. Even though the property you are renting is probably insured by the landlord, that would not include your belongings.
So protect your belongings against theft or damage by taking out home contents insurance. Shop around online for an option which suits you.
