Guide For First Time Renters

Tenancy Application

To begin the process of applying for a property most property managers will require that you fill in an application form. The more information you can provide the easier it is for the property manager to match you the right property.

Tenancy Agreement

The agreement sets out the terms that they offer and you accept for the tenancy. These terms include the amount of rent and bond, the length of the tenancy, and includes the insurance and healthy homes standards statements.

Property Condition Report

This is an inspection report made prior to your moving into a property and should be given to you as a hard copy to view make any amendments and sign and return to the property manager. This report is to identify any faults or damages to the property prior to your tenancy for example a small crack on the back door window.

Record Keeping

The property manager will keep record of your rental and bond payments, correspondence, agreements and reports. These are available to you at any time.

Record of Keys & Codes

The property manager will keep a record of the keys allocated to you at the beginning of your tenancy. This is to ensure all are returned safely at the end of the tenancy.

Contact Numbers

It is important that you keep your contact details up to date so the property manager can contact you about the tenancy.

Bond & Rent in Advance

Your bond and rent in advance are paid before the beginning of the tenancy. The bond required can be up to but no more than four weeks rent. The rent in advance can be up to two weeks in advance. The rent you pay in advance is NOT the first week of your rent.

Paying Your rent

The due date for your first rent payment is the day your tenancy begins, or a date that is agreed upon by both parties. For example if your tenancy begins on a Monday but you would like to pay your rent on Wednesday your property manager can agree to this.

Rent payments can be made by direct credit, direct debit from your bank account or a redirection from your employer or Work and Income New Zealand.


Some of our properties are pet friendly, but this is a case by case bases and will depend on references, the type and age of animal.


We work hard to keep an eye on maintenance issues to protect our Owners investment but also to keep the property safe and comfortable for our tenants.  You can report a maintenance request here.
