There is an art to securing a tenant for your property
September 6, 2019
Securing a suitable tenant for your investment property is not as simple as opening the door and letting people view the property, handing out an application form and getting a lease signed.

We require all prospective tenants to inspect your property. This allows us to conduct an initial interview with the potential tenant and to ask them some qualifying questions to ascertain their suitability for the property and to find out why they are moving and how soon they can move in.

During this process, we also listen to what the prospective tenant tells us about themselves. We do find that in some instances, what people tell us at the inspection is different to what their tenancy application tells us. We proceed with caution processing this type of application.

All prospective tenants are required to complete a detailed tenancy application form. The application is to be accompanied by 100 points of identification and written employment and rental references.

We then call the tenancy and employment referees to verify the information provided and to ask a series of question that enable us to make an informed decision as to the applicant’s suitability for your property.

We cross check the information provided through a tenancy default database to confirm the details provided to us.

We will then contact you to discuss the applicant’s profile, our reference check findings and the terms that the applicant wishes to lease the property.

Although the final decision to approve or decline an application is yours, we will base our recommendations to you upon our first inspection interview and the information contained in the application and the reference check findings.
