Dear NSW Fair Trading,

Could you please provide me with any information that would help answer the following questions:
1) What proportion of tenants in NSW attempt to transfer their bond from one lease to another?
2) What proportion of new bonds lodged could be executed via a transfer (i.e. what proportion have the same tenants as a previous bond)?

In other words, is the transfer option being exercised in those cases where it could be used?

And also, do you have any existing research that would help explain the level of utilisation of the transfer feature?

Yours faithfully,

Justin Tauber

Hi Justin,

In the first instance you should ask the authority if they can process your request as an informal request. Here's an example of an authority providing access informally: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/2...

If they don't accept that you will need to do a few more things, including paying the application fee. You can see an example of how this works on this request: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/m...

Cheers,
