Step by Step guide to renting a property with CAA Properties
Step 1: Select the area
Choose the area you would like to live in. List down important things that would be suitable to your move like schools, shopping, public amenities, access to public transport. Tell us when you would like to move and what is important to you and we will start working towards getting you in your ideal property.
Step 2: Shortlisting & Viewing properties
The properties are being let in the market very quickly, hence please tell us your availability and we will arrange the viewings for you. Please ensure that you are available for the viewing at as little as 24 hours’ notice once the property comes on the market. We have a good rapport with all our landlords and will request the viewing slots on your behalf.
Step 3: Making an offer & Tenancy Agreement
Once you have liked the property, you can accept the offer. We will then need to do our security checks so please make sure you have the necessary details at hand like previous address, references, employer’s details. We will also seek your references from your current landlord and your employer.
You will be required to pay a holding deposit (1 week’s rent) once you accept the offer. Thereafter, you will pay a security deposit of one month’s rent and we will inform you of the approved tenancy deposit scheme where we hold you deposit once you sign the Assured Short-hold Tenancy with us.
Step 4: Moving in
We will do a full check-in of the property and prepare a full inventory report when you move in. We can also assist you with your move, if needed. We will provide you with New Tenant information sheet, which will give you all details of who to contact in case of something going wrong in the property.
We expect you to maintain the property in optimum condition and we will book quarterly inspections to ensure that you are comfortable and to check on the condition of the property. It is advisable for you to arrange for your contents insurance whereas the landlord will be responsible for the building’s insurance.
Step 5: Moving out
When it is time for you to move out, we will do a check-out for you and will provide you with a check-out report. You must ensure that the condition of the property is left in the same condition as per the check-in report done at the time when you moved in.
Subsequent to a satisfactory check-out report, your deposit will be returned to you. Please bear in mind that you stand a risk of losing part or all of your deposit in case the property is damaged and requires repairs during your occupancy.
