W.H.Y --> We Help You
Signing the Form 6
We will not list a property for tenanting without a fully completed and signed Form 6. This is both our policy and required by the Property Occupations Act. Also, we must be informed if similar authority has been given to any other agency. Signing a Form 6 appoints an agent exclusively
The dwelling insurance policy must be current and show public liability insurance cover for a minimum of 10 million dollars. The landlords insurance policy must be current and ensure you are covered for loss of rent and malicious damage.
Keys, codes & access
We ask for three sets of keys. The tenant gets two. Our office keeps one for inspections and in case of an emergency.
Body Corporate & Pool Safety
If the property has a body corporate, you’ll need to send us a copy of the body corporate laws. And, if there’s a pool, we’ll need the form 23 Pool Safety Certificate. If you don’t have either, then you can safely ignore this step
Preparing for your tenant
The property must be clean and tidy, inside and out and meet current legislation. CHECKLIST to ensure your property is ready for tenants below
