Whether the agreement is written or oral, the standard conditions established by the Western Australian government apply. There is no minimum or maximum duration of the agreement under the Western Australia Act. Landlords and tenants should take the time to read the terms and fact sheet before signing the contract. Tenants and landlords can agree on additional terms and conditions that apply to the contract in addition to standard terms. These should be included in the lease. Rental form information (1AC and 1AD) contains safety information on pool/spa barriers and curtain/blind cords and chains.
We recommend regular checks of pool gates and blind cords and curtains or chains as part of the object inspection program.
