Rent with Ray White

Our Process

Our tenants find the following information useful:

1. Your initial point of contact

Your leasing consultant/property manager is your first point of contact and will assist you with any enquiries you have during the inspection and application process.

2. Property inspection

A leasing consultant/property manager will meet you at the property and take you through. Any requests for the owner, if any, must be noted on this application at the time of applying or will not be considered by the owner.

3. Completing your tenancy application form (download here : Tenancy Application Form)

It is essential that each person over eighteen years of age who will reside in the property completes a tenancy application form, even if the resident will not be on the lease. The prospective tenant’s children need not be included.

  • Proposed start date of lease, length of lease and rental amount
  • Number of occupants and ages of children (if any)
  • Pets (type, age, references, if any)
  • Evidence of applicant’s income
  • Rental references
  • Photo identification – Australian passport, drivers licence or student identification card
  • At least two references from previous lessors or agents, copies of previous rental receipts and a rental history report
  • Proof of last residential address – Telstra account, electricity account, etc

4. Submitting your tenancy application form

At the time of submitting your application, you will need to provide us with your Australian driver’s licence or passport, which will be photocopied in our office and attached to your application.

An incomplete tenancy application cannot be processed.

Once you are approved on the property a holding deposit will be required, this totals one weeks rent which when signing a lease will contribute to the weekly rent. Should you decide not to proceed with your application, the number of days from when you paid your application fee will be calculated and multiplied by the daily rent and forfeited to the owner.

What Happens Now?

Your references will be verified and the owner of the property will be consulted. On some occasions, we may not be able to immediately make contact with your references, or the owner, which is beyond our control. Your patience is appreciated. Once we have received instructions from the owner, we will be in contact with you to confirm the tenancy and arrange with you to sign the lease and advise of monies due at the time of signing the lease.
