Dear Queensland Residential Tenancies Authority,
Could you please provide me with any information that would help answer the following questions:
1) What proportion of tenants in Queensland 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?
