You will be presented with a “Bond Summary” screen (Figure 29). If you do not see a timer and the button 'View claim details' on the bond summary screen, the claim transaction has been processed or cancelled. You can look further down the bond summary for further information in sections ‘Claims or Repayments’ or ‘Rejected Electronic Transaction history’.

Note: If you have reached agreement with the renter, you should advise the renter to cancel their Renter (Tenant) initiated claim to allow you to submit an agreed claim. Instructions how a renter can cancel can be found in Renter’s guide – RTBA Online - How to initiate a claim for your bond.
