The importance of securing quality tenants who pay their rent on time and look after your property to a high standard is paramount. At Property West we strive to secure quality tenants whilst achieving the highest rent possible for our owners based on current market conditions.
To set the rent correctly, we undertake a thorough Comparative Market Analysis which assists in determining the correct asking price.
During home opens, our staff ask prospective tenants relevant questions in order to assess their suitability for the property should they apply. Our application process requires the tenant to submit a comprehensive application form and associated documentation. On receipt of all information, a thorough screening process is undertaken which involves:
Employment checks to confirm proof of income and job security
Discussions with previous property managers (where possible) to assess their history as a tenant
TICA and National Tenancy Database checks to ensure they have not been registered on a bad tenancy database – this includes New Zealand and Australia.
We aim to complete this process as quickly as possible at which time you will be contacted and presented with all applications and our recommendations – good or bad. We will then act on your instructions to either accept or reject the application – ultimately this is your decision.
In securing tenants for our executive properties, we liaise frequently with relocation agencies who are tasked with finding high quality accommodation for their clients.
