Once a property is advertised for rent, tenants contact the Agent to arrange a time to view the property. Some agents hold ‘Open Homes’ when the property is vacant. To work more efficiently, most agents will try to tie in as many prospects as possible into one viewing.
If a tenant wishes to apply for a property, they fill out an application form provided by the Agent. They must provide details such as current address, employment, number of occupants and pets. They must also provide documentation to prove identification, income, and current address.
The agent should process the application and ensure it passes their criteria before presenting it to the owner for their approval.
