The guide details the rights and obligations students have while renting accommodation. It includes tips and advice for those who rent for the first time, and informs students on the new regulations set by the Residential Tenancy Act 2016. The Guide offers rent book and inventory checklist. They help students record damages or missing utensils at the start of the lease, hence protect them from unfair deposit deductions.
