We asked managing director at Real Property Manager, John Gilmovich for his advice:

John said the landlord is obliged to provide all keys and security devices such as security swipes and remote controls for any locks or doors which come with the property.

“If it is a strata property, all common area keys and security tags must be provided to access areas such as swimming pools and gyms,” he said.

“Each tenant nominated on the tenancy agreement should receive 1 x full set of keys.”
