Important – keys won’t be issued early
It is important to note that for legal and security reasons we are unable to issue keys early, or grant you access to the property any earlier than the allocated tenancy start date.
Property Condition Report
We will conduct a property condition report if your application is accepted by the Landlord. The property condition report will be conduction together with the tenants at the property. Tenants will have to sign and accept the property condition report after it’s done.
DURING YOUR TENANCY
Additional keys or changed locks
If you wish to make additional copies of keys please let us know so we can record the number of extra keys. It is important to note that at the end of your tenancy agreement we will need back all keys given to you at the start of your tenancy and any additional copies created during your tenancy period. If you change the locks during tenancy, you must provide us with a full new set of keys for property access. Keys may be available, please contact your property manager. If you have misplaced your keys after hours, you may call a locksmith – this is at your cost.
We will conduct a routine inspection of the property after the first 3 months and approximately every 3 months thereafter. The main purpose is to reassure the landlord that you are maintaining the property. To document our inspection we will take photos or we may even video the property and any repairs required.
