Booking Details

Cancellation Policy prior to lease start date

In order to reserve a room at Scape, customers must pay a non-refundable, holding deposit equivalent to one weeks rent when booking a room online through the Scape website, in person at a Scape residence or making a booking over the phone.

Customers will be required to sign a residential agreement prior to arrival and at this point, the holding deposit will go towards the first payment of rent.

If a customer requests to cancel or does not sign the residential agreement within the required timeframe specified by Scape, the booking may be cancelled and all fees paid will be refunded to the customer less the 1 week holding deposit.

All refunds will be made via the same method in which they were paid and to the same bank account or credit or debit card used. In order to arrange a refund, the customer may be required to complete a refund form.

Once the residential agreement is signed, the terms and conditions of the residential agreement will then apply.

If a student does not get accepted into their educational institution or does not have a valid visa approval, the holding deposit can be returned to the student.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay a bond?

Yes you do. The bond is equivalent to 4 weeks' rent and must be paid by the tenancy start date. We will lodge it with the appropriate state based authority and you will then receive an email confirmation with your bond lodgment number once lodged.

What does my bond cover and when will I get it back?

The bond is registered with the appropriate state based authority and covers any damage you may cause to your room; this excludes normal wear and tear. It is refundable at the end of your stay with us as long as there are no damages, your room is left clean and there is no outstanding rent. You will receive an email when your bond is ready to be returned. Release of your bond from the state based authority will either be transferred into an Australian bank account which is the preferred method, or you can arrange for a cheque to be sent to you.

I'm not a student. Can I book with you?

Unfortunately not, our properties are available to students only. 

Do I need a guarantor to book?
