Being a Good Neighbour

Everyone has the right to quiet and peaceful enjoyment of their home. Having good relationships with neighbours makes your home a safer and more pleasant place to live. Please consider your neighbours if you are playing music, having friends over or coming home late at night.

When you sign your Residential Tenancy Agreement, you are also agreeing to abide by Venture’s Good Neighbour Charter. The Good Neighbour Charter outlines ways to act as a responsible neighbour. This includes keeping noise levels to a minimum and respecting the privacy and comfort of others.

Apart from paying your rent, electricity and water charges and keeping your home clean and undamaged, being a responsible tenant and good neighbour also means:

  • Not conducting or allowing any illegal or anti-social activity on the property
  • Ensuring you and your visitors do not make or permit any disturbing noise in your home or the building, or do anything that may interfere with the rights, comfort or convenience of other tenants
  • Being polite
  • Leaving common areas clean and tidy.

If you have problems with a neighbour, try sorting it out with them first. Venture encourages tenants to discuss any issues between each other in a calm and respectful manner. If a problem occurs that you cannot resolve yourself, please let your Property Manager know in writing.
