Rental Application Form
There are a number of documents that are often required to accompany your application, therefore before you go house hunting it's worthwhile ensuring everything is up to scratch. By being able to produce this information promptly when required can prove to be the clincher in a rental race.
Once you have found a property of interest, the first step is to contact a real estate agent and organise an inspection. You will need to inspect the property, or have someone inspect on your behalf prior to submitting an application. Inspecting a property is important to ensure it meets your housing needs.
When attending inspections, be sure to make a good first impression. Introduce yourself and be polite, friendly and enthusiastic. This, along with your neat, tidy and presentable appearance, will help you stand out and be remembered when agents / landlords are looking through all the applications.
When applying for a rental property you will need to fill in the agency’s tenancy application form and provide 100 points of ID and proof of income. As part of the tenancy application, you will need to provide contact details for referees the agency can speak with and sign a privacy consent form, giving the agent permission to contact these listed referees. Before you submit an application, speak to your referees to tell them they may be contacted by the agency.
When applying for a rental property, the landlord/agent will check your references and whether you are listed on a tenancy database. If you know that you are listed on a tenancy database, tell the landlord/agent why.
As the rental market is competitive, it is best to have all your documentation ready to go. Ensure your application form is thorough, fully completed and neat. If you submit an incomplete application it will be suspended until all required documents are provided.
