Time to get online with Tenancy Services

Tenancy Services is moving more and more of their services online, and encouraging people to use them.  Using online services is often simpler and can get things moving faster because the right information gets through securely first time. Find out about two of their latest online ventures below.

  • Tenancy Bond Lodgements – online from 1 November

From 1 November, you can now lodge a completed, signed Bond Lodgement form and pay the bonds funds for individual tenancies online with Tenancy Services.

The system allows you to enter basic details about the tenancy and attach a copy of the Bond lodgement form before being directed to the online payment system. The bond can be paid using a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card, or through internet banking (via the Account2account system with ANZ, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank, TSB or Westpac)*.

 *N.B. Internet banking using the Account2account option cannot be used if more than one person is required to login and authorise payments.

You’ll get instant confirmation that the funds have been received by the Bond Centre, and all parties listed on the online form are notified that the funds have been submitted. Bonds are then lodged in the normal manner, and once the lodgement process is completed an acknowledgement, including the bond number, is sent to all parties to the bond.
