A ‘Tenant Finding’ Service for Homeowners
This is essentially a ‘Tenant Finding’ service for those homeowners who wish to retain the day to day management of their rental property but who require help with tenant selection and initial documentation.
From our ‘Prospective Tenants List’ we will select and recommend those tenants whom we consider to be most suitable for the owner’s property. We will show the prospects through the property and carryout relevant reference and credit checks. The homeowner will then make the final choice of tenant based on our recommendations. Once the choice has been made we’ll prepare the Tenancy Agreement (together with a schedule of appropriate terms and conditions), the Bond Lodgment form and the Automatic Payment form for future rent payments. We also collect the agreed bond from the tenant and lodge this with Tenancy Services and lodge the Automatic Payment at the tenant’s bank.
At the time of signing it is our practice to go through all of these forms in quite some detail with both the tenant and the owner (Landlord). We endeavour to ensure that each party has a clear understanding of their respective rights and obligations under the contract.
Once the documentation has been completed and we have accounted to the owner for the initial rent, bond and fee moneys, our involvement with both parties is at an end. The Landlord / Tenant relationship and the day to day administration of the premises remain strictly between the owner as Landlord and the new tenant.
Our fee for this service is $100.00 plus one weeks rent (plus GST). Under current legislation the tenant pays the letting fee up to maximum of one weeks rent plus GST, so effectively the owner only pays Ray White Mt Eden Village, the sum of $100.00 for our Casual Letting service.
