Whilst we’d love for you to be able to bring your pets with you, there are various legislations in place dependent on the state and building you apply to live in, as well as moral obligations and high standards of living we as a company hold for any pet living in a city location with minimal outdoor space.
Should you require an assistance animal to alleviate and/or support a disability and can provide relevant documentation, please get in touch with our team who can support in providing the best solution for both you, your pet and your new neighbours. Whilst we do allow assistance animals into our public spaces, owning an animal whilst living at The Switch is down to the discretion of our building managers in each of our building locations.

We require a bond payment equivalent to 4 weeks’ rent from our tenants under residential tenancy agreement. Each state has specific requirements around how you can pay the bond. Please feel free to speak to our team on this.

We are not one-lease-length-for-all kind of community so please speak to our team on how long you would like to stay. Of course, the longer you stay with The Switch your weekly rent will be lower.

Yes we are happy to discuss payment options on a case by case basis.
Direct debit is our preference. You can register direct debit via the member app on your phone then your rent will be debited automatically every fortnight. Alternatively, you can pay by card or bank transfer. Please note card payments will incur surcharge.
Prior to or on your move out day we will conduct a room inspection together with you. This is to determine if there’s any damage to the room/apartment. You will get a full bond refund if there’s no charge incurred for damage or cleaning. Otherwise, your bond will be refunded partially less the damage/cleaning charges. You will not be entitled to a refund if the bond is not sufficient to cover damage/cleaning charges and you are required to pay the balance before your departure.
