ADVERTISING A PROPERTY
Absolute Discretion of the University
The University reserves the right to accept or reject
advertisements in its absolute discretion.
The University may at any time, without liability to you, remove,
alter or disable access to any or all of your advertisements in its sole
discretion without prior notice to you.
Recommendations by the University
advertisement listing carries no statement of endorsement by the University.
No Liability of the University
The University accepts no responsibility or liability for the
behaviour or correspondence of persons who respond to your advertisement.
The University makes no guarantee that you will find tenants as a
result of using the UOW Accommodation Services Property Listing Service to
advertise your vacancy.
The University can in no way guarantee the suitability of tenants
found through the UOW Accommodation Services Property Listing Service and will accept no liability or
responsibility for any such tenants, including any failure of the tenants to
pay a bond or rent.
The University may provide a copy of the advertisement to students
or staff to assist them in taking any action against an accommodation provider
where there is a dispute between the two parties.
It is your responsibility to provide accurate and current
information when submitting an advertisement through the UOW Accommodation
Services Property Listing Service.
You are responsible for the management of correspondence and dealings with persons who respond to your advertisement. It is expected that you will deal with persons seeking accommodation in accordance to the relevant conditions under the Residential
Tenancies Act 2010 (NSW) and other relevant State legislation pertaining to accommodation standards, rental agreements and bond.
The following rules must be complied with before a property is
approved for listing by the University:
- All information must be accurate and current.
- Listings must have the street and (if applicable) unit number.
- Photographs must be recent photographs of the actual property.
- Properties advertised as unfurnished but showing furnished
photographs will either not be approved or have the photographs removed, as
this can be construed as false advertising.
- No more than four weeks rent for bond should be charged and at no
time should there be a 'bond' charged for utilities.
Additional rules for properties with five or more bedrooms:
- The property must not be listed if the accommodation provider is not complying with all applicable requirements contained in the Boarding Houses Act 2012 (NSW), including:
a written occupancy agreement;
the property is reasonably clean, in a reasonable state of repair and
occupants of the house rules;
occupants to have quiet enjoyment of the property;
receipts for any payments you receive; and
- advising occupants of what utilities they are required to pay and how charges will be calculated.
