Updating your business and company name - agents

If an agency business name (also known as trading name) has changed, the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA) requires a:

  • cover letter from the company director requesting a change in name, and
  • Certificate of Business Registration, or a 'Current Business Name Extract'.

If a company name has changed, but the ownership remains the same, the RTBA requires a:

  • cover letter from the company director requesting the change in name, and
  • copy of the Certificate of Company Registration.

If a company name and ownership have changed, the agency must:

  1. Register as a new agency to be an RTBA agent.
  2. Once you have received a new RTBA number, submit documents for a bulk transfer or rent roll from the old RTBA number to the new number.
  3. Send an official letter to the RTBA requesting to deactivate the old RTBA number.

The RTBA recommends you complete these three steps separately to prevent confusion in processing the transactions.
