I am currently renting a property through Your Local Rental and they have been a pleasure to deal with. Amanda Underwood, the property manager for our place is very understanding, will go above and beyond to keep tennants happy and is a pleasure to deal with. For example; I locked myself out of my house late a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night and she came to the rescue with some spare keys even though my phone call had woken her up... Lucinda
You must seek permission to add people to your lease. Additional tenants will have to complete our application process and sign onto the lease. We may refuse your request if the property is unsuitable for an additional person, or the person you are proposing does not meet our eligibility criteria.^ back to top
In most cases, pets are considered on application. It’s important to consider the suitability of each pet on a case-by-case basis as obviously some pets are more compatible with certain types of properties. Ultimately, the property owner will have the final say as to whether or not your application will be approved with your pets.^ back to top
In most cases we will process your application within 48 hours.^ back to top
As a rule of thumb, we’ll inspect a property every 3 months. So if you’re on a 6-month lease, you’ll likely have one inspection, and if you signed a 12-month lease, expect three inspections.
In any case, we’ll give you plenty of notice advising when we’ll inspect, and give you a 2-hour time-frame of when we’ll enter. You can choose to be there, but it’s not necessary.^ back to top
You’ll be responsible for continuing to pay rent until a new tenant can be found. You will also be responsible for paying a re-letting fee (the equivalent of one week's rent plus GST) and any other related expenses.^ back to top
