Once I’ve found a property I want to rent, how do I apply?

Application processes will differ between real estate agents and landlords, but the process typically requires that you fill out a Pre-Tenancy Application form.  This form asks you for a variety of personal information that will help a landlord assess your suitability for renting their property. The information you provide on the form may be used to undertake a Credit Check, so ensure you answer the questions honestly.
Typically, the following information is requested on the form:
  • Proof of your previous addresses, with your rental property history included
  • Proof of your current and previous employment history (and income)
  • The names and number of people intending to rent the property with you
  • The name of the person who will be the contracting party (or lead tenant)
  • The date you wish to move into the rental property
  • Proof of identity (Photo identification, such as a drivers licence or passport)
Your completed form should be given to the letting agent or landlord for processing.
