RENTING AN APARTMENT 2 (page 1)

Tenancy Agreement

Read the text and then listen and answer the questions that follow.

When you rent a flat or apartment with friends you usualy have to sign a tenancy agreement. This is usually for six or twelve months, but it can be shorter. It is a legal document which sets out the dates when the rental begins and ends, the amount of rent and the conditions. You usually also have to pay a bond which is equal to four weeks rent.

If you move into an existing sharehouse, your sharemates will probably ask you to pay a share of the bond, but you might not have a formal agreement like a tenancy agreement.
