Applying For A Rental Property

If you are interested in applying for a property to rent through our office, please read through the following information.

Prior to An Application

  1. Find a property suitable to your requirements, via our rent list or from our website: www.actionrealty.com.au.
  2. Please find the general tenancy agreement including any special terms for each property behind the listing page in the properties for rent folder at reception.
  3. The standard terms and conditions are also available in the back of this folder.  You must read these thoroughly before applying for any properties with our agency.
  4. Firstly, you must view the property by driving past. Some homes may still be tenanted. Please respect the privacy of our tenants and do not enter the yard.
  5. If you like the property, you can make a viewing appointment via the 'Register to Inspect' button on our website (in the individual property listing) as per the image to the right of the screen. Once you have completed the steps above, and the property and rental terms suit, please feel free to make an application for the property.

  • Proof of Income - Pay slips, Centrelink Statement, Letter from Employer.  If you do not have an income, you need to be able to prove how you are going to be able to pay the rent, ie documents to prove substantial savings, or offer to pay a substantial rental period in advance.

If the owner accepts your application you will be required make an appointment  within 24 hours to come in and sign the lease documents and pay 2 weeks rent.   

The first 2 weeks rent (as above) and the equivalent of 4 weeks bond (to be paid when collecting the keys) are to be paid prior to moving into the property and the preferred method of payment is by EFTPOS, bank cheque or money order. We do not accept personal cheques or credit card payments.  We do not accept cash payments on the weekend.

When your moving in day arrives, you will be provided with a copy of all documents and receive our 'Tenant Welcome Pack'! You will also be given an RTA Entry Condition Report. This has been completed by our office, and you are required to complete your section, sign and return it to our office within 3 working days from the commencement of your lease.
