Once you have physically inspected and selected a rental property that meets your requirements, you are then required to submit an application to rent the property
This can be done in a number of ways…
1. Apply online via the 1Form web site click here
2. Or download and print an application form, click here and submit it to the relevant Reventon Residential, by email or fax.
Please note that you must be over 18 years of age.
Proof of your identity is required with proof of identity and references. Please note it is with discretion that the owner will make the final decision on which tenant they chose for their property.
After filling out your application and submitting it to us, it will be processed by the Reventon Residential property management department, which will confirm the information you have provided and check your suitability for the property.
Your application, together with any others that might have been received for the property, will be referred to the owner.
The relevant property manager will contact you to advice of the outcome.
If your application is approved, you will be required to sign leases documents and provide the following payments.
1. The Bond in the form of a bank cheque or money order made payable to The Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA)
2. The first month’s rent in the form of a bank transfer to Reventon Residential, within 24 hours of being accepted for the property
If payment is not received within 24 hours the property will be relaunched to re-rent .
Once the first months rent or the bond has been paid, you have legally entered an agreement and if you change your mind you will incur break lease fees and charges.
You will be provided with information concerning your rights and responsibilities, after-hours emergency maintenance procedures, a copy of the lease agreement, and general advice that will help you with your move, including an appointment time to meet at the property for handover.
If you would like help (at no extra charge) with the connection of utilities at the rental property, such as gas, electricity, telephone, water, broadband and pay TV, we can arrange when you sign your lease, through Your Porter.
When you start your tenancy, you’ll also be given keys, direct debit information and a Condition Report that sets out the condition of the property. It is important that you check this report, make any appropriate amendments (if required), and return it to your property manager within three business days of commencing your tenancy.
This report is referred to at the end of the tenancy to determine whether the condition of the property has been maintained. This will in turn have a bearing on the disbursement of the bond and if you have not completed the report or not entered damage you may be liable for the cost at the end of the tenancy.
When you sign your lease agreement you will receive an email asking you to download the Maintenance Manager application on your smart phone. Under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997, all maintenance requests MUST be provided in writing using this app you can not only record any issues but also take photo.
You will then be contacted by a Reventon Residential property manager to confirm your request. This app will update you on all processes including advising you when a tradesperson has been engaged to arrange for the work to be completed.
If your maintenance issue is urgent, please go to Urgent Repairs.
‘YourPorter’ offers a free service that helps take the hassle out of moving. Whether moving in or out, with one simple step you can arrange connection of your phone, electricity, gas, water, broadband and pay TV. For more information contact us or speak to your property manager.
Your bond and first month’s rent must be paid by either bank cheque, money order or direct debit (the bond should be made payable to Residential Tenancies Bond Authority, and the first month’s rent made payable to Reventon Residential).
Rent is payable on a monthly basis (unless otherwise negotiated). A lease is a legally binding contract, and it’s important that rent be paid in accordance with the terms outlined in the lease.
Rent can be paid in a number of ways. Your various payment options will be explained at the time of leasing.
If you change the locks, you must provide your property manager with a key. If you have any other key-related questions (e.g. lost keys), please speak to your property manager.
It is a requirement of your lease agreement that you obtain contents insurance for your goods. We strongly recommend that you arrange adequate insurance to cover the contents of the property as your owner is not liable for any damage incurred.
Urgent repairs are serious problems affecting the safety or security of the rental property, or failure of any essential service or appliance.
