Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I, or my family need somewhere to stay prior to checking into the accommodation?

If you or your family need somewhere to stay for a couple of nights to a week, or rest your head after coming in from a late-night flight then why not book at Essence Hotel Carlton. Offering comfortable rooms that give you the freedom to relax in a place away from home.

What are your check-in times and days?

Monday to Friday 2pm and 4pm (excluding public holidays)

Do you offer after hours check-in?

Unfortunately, we do not offer check-ins outside of specified check-in times.

Where do I check-in?

Check-in at Reception.

What electricity cost am I responsible for?

Each resident pays for their energy as it is separately metered and will hold their own account with an energy company. The accommodation recommends Sumo as an electricity provider.

How do I reserve a room at this accommodation?

Complete the online application. Once we have received your application, we will send you a rental offer. To accept this offer you will be required to pay the first month’s rental and for any additional service options that you choose. Before you move into the accommodation, a bond equal to one month’s rental will be required

What kind of contracts does the accommodation offer?

6 and 12 month leases, however from time to time we are able to offer shorter lease periods.

What does my rent include?

  • A fully furnished apartment
  • Gas

What is not included on my rent?

  • Water Usage
  • Electricity Consumption

Why is the rent not 4 times the weekly rental amount?

Rental is per calendar month. The weekly rate is multiplied by 52 weeks as there are 52 weeks in a year, and it is then divided by 12 months to get the monthly rate.

How do I pay my rent?

Rent is to be paid as per the Tenancy Agreement and must always be in advance. Payments can be made in the following way:

  • Bank transfer into the accommodation Bank Account
  • Direct deposit at the bank into the nominated accommodation Bank Account
  • Credit card at the admin office during business hours.
  • BPAY
  • DEFT payment.

What is a Bond?

A bond is a payment that acts as a security deposit against the resident meeting the terms of their rental agreement or their duties under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997. The bond will be lodged with the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA). The RTBA will hold the bond in trust until the end of the lease. Then, the bond is:
  • Refunded entirely to the tenant/resident, or
  • Claimed in part or in full by the landlord/owner.

How much is the Bond?

The bond is equivalent to one month’s rent.

Paying the Bond?

You are required to pay the bond into the bank account we supply. We will then lodge a bond application with the RTBA. You will then receive an email from the RTBA to complete the bond submission.

I have a car, so is there any car park?

Carparking available starting from $20 per week.

What is a Condition Report?

Upon arrival, we must prepare a ‘Condition Report’, which records the property’s general condition, including fittings and fixtures, and present you with 2 copies of this Report when you come to collect your keys. Review and, if necessary, add your comments to the ‘Condition Report’. You must return the report to the accommodation within three business days of moving in and you should keep a copy of the ‘Condition Report’ until the end of the tenancy. The ‘Condition Report’ is a very important document, as it can be used as evidence if there is a dispute about who should pay for cleaning, damage, or replacement of missing items, particularly at the end of a tenancy. You may want to take photos of your apartment at the start of your tenancy to further show the condition. The owner may claim some or the entire bond for cleaning, damage, or replacement of missing items at the end of your tenancy. If the ‘Condition Report’ stated that the work was required at the start of the tenancy, or the items were not listed, it can help you prove the bond should be returned to you.

I am vacating, can I use the Bond for my last month's rent?

Your bond and rent are separate payments. You are required to pay rent in the specified way up to and including the date of your departure.

What happens when I vacate?

You need to leave your apartment clean and tidy in the same condition as when you arrived, ensure all personal items have been removed and report any damage that may have been caused during your tenancy. This allows for a speedy bond resolution. We offer a prepaid service for departure cleaning to assist residents.

How do I receive my Bond back?

The accommodation will start a bond claim, which will be done within 10 business days after you leave the rented property. All residents are emailed a link to the claim details. Click through to accept or request changes to the claim and enter in your bank details for the bond refund. Once all tenants/residents have agreed, the RTBA will deposit the money into the nominated bank account(s) within two business days. If you are overseas and do not have an Australian bank account, the RTBA can issue a cheque that you can deposit into an overseas bank account. If your overseas bank cannot deposit the cheque, an overseas bank transfer can be arranged for a fee. If you have not provided valid bank account details in the bond claim, the RTBA will retain the bond until you provide a valid payment option.

Why are you claiming my Bond?

The owner (via the accommodation), can try to recover all or part of the bond at the end of a tenancy if:
  • The tenant or resident:or their visitors have damaged the property
    has left and owes rent (rent in arrears)
    has abandoned the premises
    has left you to pay bills they should have paid
  • There are cleaning or repair expenses that exceed normal ‘wear and tear’.
  • Items that were part of the tenancy agreement are missing.

Do I need to organise my own Contents Insurance?

No, this is included in your rental payments. 

Can I move out at any time?

When considering the premature termination of your Residential Tenancy Agreement, it is your responsibility to:
  • Continue to pay all rent charges until a new resident can be secured or the Residential Tenancy Agreement ends, whichever comes first.
  • Pay all associated costs including applicable advertising and break lease fees as set out in your Residential Tenancy Agreement.
  • In all cases, a departure cleaning fee applies.
