Guide to Renting
Inspecting the Property:
Before applying for a property you must inspect it. Be thorough with your inspection as the landlord is not required to make any changes or alterations that you request.
Applications may be collected from the staff member at the office or online at www.nimbinrealestate.com.au
Applying for a Rental Property
An application must be submitted for each person you would like named on the lease. Each application must be accompanied with a copy of the applicants drivers license or passport.
If you are on government benefits or supported by other means, you will need to provide documentation of this, for example a Centerlink Statement.
If you own your own property, please provide a copy of a recent rates notice that shows your name and the address of the property.
For those who own your own business we require contact details for your Accountant and any supporting documentation that will confirm your income.
You are welcome to provide any additional documents such as pay slips or bank statements to further support your application
Paying a Deposit
When you have been approved for a property you will need to pay a holding deposit. This is usually 1 week, but may differ depending on your agreement. This deposit is payable by Bank Cheque or Money Order payable to Nimbin Lifestyle Real Estate or direct deposit into our account.
Pay your deposit as quickly as possible as the property will remain on the market until it is received.
Signing your Lease
On the agreed day all parties named on the lease must come to our office to read and sign the lease agreement. Keys will not be released until the lease is signed by all parties
Allow approximately 1/2 hour to sign your lease as you need to acknowledge that you have read the lease agreement and understand its obligations.
You will be given all documentation, including a copy of the lease, inspection reports, renting guide as well as the keys to the property, once you have finished signing the lease.
