Ten­ants may be in for bonus

Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

FOR­MER ten­ants who paid a rental bond over the past 10 years could be in line for a New Year bonus.

The Res­i­den­tial Te­nan­cies Author­ity (RTA) is hold­ing more than $2.7 mil­lion in un­claimed rental bonds from peo­ple ei­ther for­get­ting to cash their re­fund cheques or not pro­vid­ing an ad­dress where their fund could be sent.

Pre­mier Peter Beat­tie said a me­dia cam­paign was launched in April in an at­tempt to re­turn the bond money.

‘‘It had some suc­cess with more than 2000 re­funds worth more than $200,000 go­ing back to ten­ants but there is still a large sum wait­ing to be claimed,’’ he said.
