We respect tenants as much as landlords and appreciate that the tenants of today could be the landlords of tomorrow. Without tenants our business cannot survive and we seek to ensure we provide a positive tenancy experience for everyone renting through us.
» Getting Started
- What area would you like to live in?
- What weekly rental amount can you afford to pay?
- What concessions are you prepared to make to secure a rental property within your budget?For Example:
- Suburbs near your desired address;
- # of bedrooms; bathrooms; car spaces;
- A single bedroom cleverly furnished can accommodate two children or a desk;
- Carport and street parking are an alternative to a garage;
- Do you require public transport?
- Do you need to be near schools, shops, services?
» Tips for Easier Renting
Here are some points to consider…
- Have all your documentation ready. This includes:
- References (for both you and your pets);
- Proof of employment (pay slips, bank statements, tax returns);
- 100 points of ID;
- Have your bond and four weeks rental ready;
- Try for a mid-week viewing. This may mean you see a property before your competition;
- Decide your “must haves” and your “nice to haves” and be flexible;
- Keep a log book of each viewing experience: property details, photos, who you met, what you saw and what you learned from the conversation – this information may help you later;
- Understand which utility providers service the location and talk to them all. The most competitive utility provider may not necessarily be the existing one;
- Be friendly, courteous and professional with all you meet, including your neighbours.
- Treat the property condition report seriously and be thorough in your assessment of the property’s condition. Fill it out completely and return it promptly to your agent.
- Take out contents insurance;
- Request a meter reading;
- Remember to redirect your mail.
