View the property on-line, call to speak to our leasing representative and ask any questions then arrange an inspection time.
Some of our properties do have tenants living there so we may need to arrange a time that suits them. First view the property, complete an application form and submit to our office with copies of your ID (Passport, Driver License, Medicare Card, Student ID, Bank Card).
It may take up to 2 business days for your application to be processed, and then we contact the owner of the property for acceptance. Please keep in mind it can take up to 4 days for an answer on your application. We telephone you to advise acceptance or declined application. If accepted, you will need to arrange a time to come in and pay the initial holding deposit which is equivalent to one weeks rent and collect the approval documents, which will outline the agreement and cost required on the lease sign up date.
On the day of the lease signing which will be outline in your approval documents, we will go through the legal details of the lease and you will be required to sign the lease. All parties to the lease will need to be there for the signing. On this day you will need to bring the remaining money required as per the approval documents by way of bank cheque or money order only. NO CASH OR PERSONAL CHEQUES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
We can assist with a "Fast Connect Form" to connect your telephone, gas and power all on one document. We fax this through and take care of this at no additional cost to you. We will give you all the information you require on preferred contractors, emergency contacts, maintenance request procedures, vacating information and more. Take your keys and move into your new home.
Ensure you take the time to read the Property Condition Report (PCR) and return to our office within 7 days of your move in date. This document will be handed to you at your lease sign up appointment, or if not (as in the case of some brand new properties) we will post it to you. Remember if you have any concerns or maintenance issues it is best to email them to us or send a fax though for urgent attention.
