Indicative move-in date is on or after the 18th of November, pending occupancy forms being signed off by the agent.
The rent is $395/fortnight, payable every second Thursday. The bond is already paid in full and the lease is in my name, so you'll be a sub-occupant as the process for adding someone to the lease is more onerous. I'm comfortable assuming sole liability for the property, but I will request a nominal amount to be paid to me, less than the bond, which I will return if either of us vacate.
The property is located on Canberra Avenue, a 10 minute walk from Manuka shops and Kingston shops and a 20 minute walk from National Circuit and Parliament House. The rent is very competitive given the proximity to Manuka and Kingston. Internet is $45 p/m ($90 split in half) and electricity/gas are variable with seasons.
The apartment will have room for some furniture if you have some you would like to bring in. I am using the interior parking spot but there is guest parking or a strip across the road if you have a car. Your room does not have an in-built closet, however there is a cloth closet available (or your own closet can be moved in).
The apartment has an NBN connection. I own the fridge/microwave
and there is a laundry and dryer installed, so the whitegoods are covered. There is a balcony and unfortunately no in-built heating/air-conditioning or elevator (three flights of stairs).
No smoking or pets allowed as per the existing rental agreement.
I'm Ethan, a public servant. I moved to Canberra from Melbourne in January 2018 to take up a graduate position. I'm easy to live with, I reliably pay my bills, cook my own food, and don't have any major requirements for a roommate. When I'm not at work or out having a drink I'm usually out for a run or reading/watching Netflix/playing games. Apartment would suit a current or recent APS grad - it made my transition certainly easier.
