Queenslander style homes are perfect for the tropical climate in Brisbane.
These open, wooden houses, usually have wide verhandas to sit and relax on,
during summer's balmy evenings. This page is designed to introduce you to
the cost of property in Brisbane and also provide you with the information
you will need to either rent or buy somewhere to live.
Most leases are for a minimum period of 6 months and require at least two weeks notice when you move out. If you break your lease, most agents will have you pay rent until another tenent is found for the property.
If you rent privately and not through a Real Estate agent, your terms and conditions may be more negotiable. It is helpful to have previous rental history and references available.
In Brisbane, the land rates (council rates) are paid by the owner and not the tenant. Additionally, excess water rates are usually paid by the owner unless specified in your contract.
