There is no minimum or maximum duration of the agreement under Western Australian law. In Western Australia, a housing rental agreement can be written or oral. Whether the agreement is written or oral, the standard terms established by the Government of Western Australia apply. The conditions of the contract can only be modified with the written agreement of the lessor and the tenant. Both landlords and tenants should take the time to read the terms and conditions and the fact sheet before signing the contract. In addition to providing space for relevant details, the standard form agreement also comfortably lists the standard conditions that, under Western Australian law, must apply to all agreements. If you pay your deposit, deposit or rent in cash, make sure you receive a receipt. .
