SA simplifies bond return process

SA simplifies bond return process

In a bid to reunite tenants with millions of dollars worth of unclaimed bonds, South Australia is “stepping up its efforts”.

The state’s commissioner for consumer affairs, Dini Soulio, has revealed the “simplified” process, aiming to better help people determine whether they are owed money – and how to lodge a claim when that’s the case.

Mr Soulio said, “every year, we return tens of millions of dollars in bond money to tenants but there are times when that money simply isn’t claimed”.

According to the commissioner, there are a number of reasons that this occurs: “For example, people may have provided incorrect banking details or there’s no forwarding address or phone number for CBS to contact them.”

“To make the process easier for people wishing to find out if they are owed money, CBS has simplified the process to help those who are entitled to a refund,” he revealed, highlighting the Residential Bonds Online portal

You can now go to the CBS website and find out if you are owed money. Simply enter the details of your tenancy, including the street address of the property, your full name and contact details.”

Then, if money is owed, South Australian residents can simply apply online.
