How often do I pay my rent?

The easiest way to pay your rent is through our fortnightly direct debit system. We also have full upfront payment options. If you wish to pay the full rent amount in one lump sum, you can do this with a credit or debit card at Reception or by bank transfer. International transfers or credit card payments may result in a surcharge from your bank.

What is a Bond? And how do I pay it?

The bond is a security deposit registered with the appropriate state-based authority and covers any damage you may cause to the room. Don’t worry, this excludes normal wear and tear. You will receive an email 10 days before your contract start date asking you to pay a security deposit through the Resident Portal.

It is refundable at the end of your stay with us if 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 of your choice which is the preferred method, or you can arrange for a cheque to be sent to you.

When do I sign my contract?

Would you like an express check-in? If you complete your pre-arrival process before arrival your check-in will only take 10 minutes. If you haven’t completed your pre-arrival process, your check-in could take up to 30 minutes.

What do I need to do to complete an express check in?

Your contract will be available 12 weeks prior to your contract start date via our Resident Portal. Once logged in to the portal, you will be able to review and sign your contract prior to arriving at Scape. Make sure to give yourself enough time to read the contract carefully before signing. Once completed, we’ll send you a copy of the final signed contract via email for your records.

You’ll also need to upload your Confirmation of Enrolment and Photo ID, plus complete your emergency contact and rent payment information.

Do I need to bring my own bedspread, quilt and pillow?

Yes. However, to make life easier, these items may be purchased on our website when booking your room, or via our Resident Portal, and can be ready for you on check-in. They can also be purchased from Reception, subject to availability. Get settled early and purchase your bedding pack to guarantee availability.

How do I buy linen and kitchen supplies in advance?

You can log in to our Resident Portal to buy kitchen and bedding before arriving at Scape. Alternatively, you can email the property directly.

Can friends visit?

Of course! This is your home. If you would like to have a guest stay overnight, that is fine too, but you’ll need to be over 18. Unfortunately, overnight guests aren’t permitted in twin rooms, shared apartments or Under 18 rooms.
