Information for Tenants

Looking for a property to rent

To make the search for a suitable rental property easier, we place all rental properties available for lease on the internet. Generally photos and addresses will be displayed to help decide if the property is suitable for you. A drive past the property also helps give you a feel for location and access to surrounding facilities.

If you are interested in inspecting a property, please give us a call to arrange a viewing.

To avoid any surprises or discontent after moving in, a property must be inspected by a prospective Tenant before a tenancy application can be submitted.

How much do I need?

On acceptance of an application, it is necessary to sign a lease and pay the first two weeks rent in advance. You will also be required to pay a bond prior to the commencement of the lease. For a weekly rental of up to $250.00, the bond is equivalent to four weeks rent. A weekly rental of over
$250.00 requires a bond equivalent to six weeks rent. This bond is lodged with the Residential Tenancies Branch for the term of the lease.

What are a tenant's responsibilities?

A Tenant is responsible for:

- Maintenance of the garden and grounds.
- Clearing of rubbish and paths and driveways clean and free from oil
- Inside of the property must be kept clean and tidy in line with original standard.
- Water costs
- Connection of gas, electricity and telephone services if available.

Maintenance

All maintenance requests must be made in writing. This can be done online using our maintenance request form or by email or by fax using the forms supplied with your tenancy information. Phone requests will only be accepted in the case of emergency.
