Re: Rental bond at [your address]
I refer to your request that I pay an additional rental bond on the above premises.
I draw your attention to section 161 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010. Where a tenant has paid a rental bond, a landlord or landlord’s agent cannot demand additional amounts of rental bond where the tenant continues to occupy the residential premises under one or more successive residential tenancy agreements.
I have a residential tenancy agreement dated [date] which shows that the rental bond was $[amount].
I trust this clarifies the matter.
