Looking for a Rental Property?

RENTING

Finding a home to rent can be exciting and daunting with many stages to the process. 

Here at Bentley Realty we have a friendly competent team of staff who understand the rental industry well to assist you. 

They will work hard to make sure you find the right home for you, in the right location for you, within your budget and time scale.

It is important that we understand your needs so that we can find the right home for you.  We will take into account what type of property you are seeking to rent and where, and also when you need the property.  We endeavour to find the perfect property that will meet all of your needs.  We will arrange inspections which are suitable for you and ensure that you are accompanied each inspection to assist you and answer any queries you may have.


When you have chosen the property to rent you will be given an Application Form and what documents we need from you to carry out referencing checks.  Upon successful completion of referencing and approval we begin to prepare further documentation such as an Entry condition report, Tenancy Agreement prior to signing up date.  

On the signing up day you will need to have 4 weeks rent for Bond Lodgement and 2 weeks rent in advance. ie:a total of 6 weeks rent ready for sign up day.   An allotted time is arranged for documentation presentation and all parties on the lease are to be present to go through documentation, view Entry photos, sign documents and finally receive your keys to property.  This procedure is strictly adhered to with each rental placement.
