What you need to know about renting

Today’s rental climate means that there is a higher demand for rental properties, however, there is also an increasing shortage of available properties for rent.

This means that if you’re looking to rent, you have to be diligent in filling out your application, provide as much information as possible with your application and be prepared to pay your deposit and sign the lease immediately upon acceptance of your application.

Quality tenants are snapped up by investors and as a tenant you need to be prepared to apply for a property as soon as you have inspected it. References are a great tool in providing character and professional profiles, as well as rental history from previous landlords or Property Managers.

 

Here are a few of the things that you should consider when looking for a property to rent:

  • Is the property suitable for your needs (do you have pets or small children that require fenced yards? Do you need to be close to public transport?)
  • Are you readily available to inspect or move into a property?
  • Have you provided as much information as possible with your application for the Landlord’s consideration?
  • Do you have current references for the Landlord’s consideration?
  • Do you have your 100 points of I.D

 

The market is tight and rental accommodation is becoming more and more scarce.
