Renting is a complex process, from finding the right home to completing complex paperwork and decoding legal jargon, at Merv Smith Realty we focus on making this exercise as painless as possible.
We suggest that you familiarise yourself with our application process before you begin your search so that you adequately assemble copies of all relevant documents to ensure your application is submitted as soon as possible.
You will be required to submit:
- Personal details
- Details of your current and recent addresses
- Details of rental history including rental references
- Next of kin details
- Personal and professional references
- 100 points of identification:
- Employment details or proof of income
- Last two pay slips
- Bank statement showing savings or large lump sum deposits
All that done, the next step is to find your Property perfect!
This is absolutely the most important step in the rental process. Finding the ‘right’ property will impact upon you for the entirety of your lease. So it’s important that you carefully consider exactly what you want.
All you need to do is go online and search for rentals that match your search criteria. 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 one, or a handful of properties, that you are interested in, it is important that you inspect the property before you apply. If you can’t make an inspection personally, you can by all means have someone view the property on your behalf.
