Applying for a Rental Property
For first time renters, the process of applying for a rental property can be daunting. Before you move into your next home, here are a few key things to think about;
- Finding a Property
Finding the ‘right’ property is a decision that will affect you for the entirety of your lease. So it’s important that you carefully consider exactly what you want in a home.
Most people will narrow down their search by rent price, suburb, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms and number of car parks.
Once you’ve found the properties you are interested in, it is a requirement that you inspect the property before you apply. You may also have someone view the property on your behalf.
At Raine & Horne Pymble/Gordon we conduct open homes to give you an opportunity to inspect our rental properties. If our listed times are not convenient for you, please contact our friendly Property Managers to arrange a private inspection. Please note that if the property is tenanted, we may not be able to access the property outside the advertised open for inspection times.
- Submitting Your Application
Once you’ve found and inspected a property that you are happy with, the next step is to submit a tenancy application.
You will be required to complete the form and provide copies of the relevant documentation as listed below:
- Evidence of rental history ( tenancy ledger ) or details of home ownership
- Personal and professional references
- 100 points of identification: Driver’s license, passport, 18+ card, birth certificate
- Bank/credit card, phone/electricity account statement, bank statement
