Property Renting Process

Renting a property can, even at the best of times, be a daunting and frustrating experience without the right advice. So before you start your search, why not use our Tenant's Guide to give you the basic knowledge and tools to take the first step in finding that special place you call home.

01Decide on an Area


Firstly you need to decide on which area or development you want to live in, several factors that could influence this decision would be renting close to you work place, children`s school or near family and friends. Although you may be looking for a sea view or close to recreational and sports activities.






02Work out your finances


When renting an apartment, the annual or monthly rent will depend mostly on what you can afford and your income or salary. Make sure you add in the costs of electricity, water, satellite and internet packages along with an other extra charges. Owners and Landlords tend to offer a reduction in rent if this is paid up front on a yearly basis on the other hand it may be more convenient for you to pay monthly this we will help you discuss with the Owners and Landlords in advance.





03Have your paperwork ready


Most Owners and Landlords will keep a copy of your identity proof when you rent a property from them it`s best to make copies of all your important documents in advance as you will also need them when connecting telephone, water, electricity and internet. You should also have copies of your valid driving licence and identity proof just to be on the safe side. Ask your designated Property Destinyconsultant and they can guide you more on this process and answer any questions.





04Choose an Agent/Agency


When you instruct Property Destiny to be your prefered local agent for finding you the perfect rental property for you and your family we aim to please. Therefore you`ll be safe in our hands as we are fully licensed with all regulatory departments.






05Rental property viewings

This can be done in mornings, afternoons, evenings  or weekends to fit in with your schedule simply call your consultant and they will arrange all this on your behalf with a confirmation call to you with times when complete.






06Making an offer

Receiving an Offer

After viewing all the properties with your Property Destiny consultant you may want to make an offer to the Owners and Landlords on a certain price, some may also be flexible with payment plans and also give reductions on full payments in advance for the year.






07Agreeing to rent


Once you have accepted your rental offer you really only need to agree with the Owner or Landlord on a moving in date. Now this can depend on whether the property is occupied with a tenant already or if it is vacant in which case it`s easier. Thereafter it`s only a case of connecting your telephone, electricity, water and internet and you can move in.

We will advise on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way in case you need us.

Our agreements are all attested and certified. Once the agreement is finalised your deposit shall be passed onto the owner.






09Tenancy Contract signed


Once your Tenancy Contract is signed, we will conduct the final inventory screening to ensure the property is ready and waiting for you to move into and enjoy.

Once all the paperwork and contracts have been signed along with the deposit and the balance payment you are ready to move into your new home.
