I would like your firm to help let out my property. How can I engage you?
To facilitate leasing of property on behalf of owners, landlords are required to complete an inquiry form. They would be contacted when their inquiry is received and reviewed and inspection of the property is arranged. Inspections are important to assess the condition of the property and to advise on repairs and upgrades, if required, for optimal value and market interest. Following an inspection, the property owner is expected to provide the firm with a mandate letter authorizing the firm to proceed with marketing the property.
How do you screen tenants?
Prospective tenants are required to fill our acquaintance form for proper documentation and profile assessment. We also require a valid means of identifications, verify prospects’ place of work and current residence, and secure a guarantor letter.
I would like to rent a property, what process do I follow?
Please browse listed properties on our website and social media channels (IG, FB) for your preference. After selection, contact us to arrange for an inspection of your choice property. If you do not find any property suitable for you on our electronic platforms, kindly fill our enquiry form to guide us in finding you your choice property.
As a tenant, why do I need references?
Prospective landlords prefer tenants who have the ability and are willing to pay their rents on time; and will take good care of their properties. Verifiable guarantors are able to attest to the tenant’s credibility and agree to be liable in the event of a tenant’s default or mismanagement of the property.
Why do I have to pay a refundable caution deposit?
A deposit is held to ensure that damages to the property (over and above fair wear and tear) as well as outstanding utility charges can be corrected at the end of the tenancy. If it is determined at the end of tenancy that no damages have been incurred and all utility charges are paid, deposits are refunded to the tenant.
I would like you to sell my property, how do I go about it?
To facilitate sale of properties we would require a letter of instruction/mandate to sell from the owner of the property or administrator. If the property is jointly owned, a letter of agreement to sell must be signed by all owners and provided with the instruction/mandate to sell.
Instruction letter should include:
