Renting Out Your Property

House For Rent - Deck Photo

Finding the most suitable and reliable tenants for your investment property can be a tricky, time-consuming job when you do it yourself.

So why not entrust this task to the experts at Rentex?
Our proven tenant finding service (casual letting) will save you hours of time and a lot of stress.

While tenant finding is bundled with our total property management offering, it can also be provided as a standalone service. We find great tenants for your property, while you do the other tasks of property management.


How the service works

We can make recommendations about Auckland rental rates and tenant types to target. To minimise downtime, we recommend you contact us as soon as your existing tenant gives notice. If you need time to clean, repair or renovate the property, this can be taken into consideration.

We let our tenant database know that your property has come on the market and include a viewing link. We advertise on www.rentex.net.nz plus realestate.co.nz and its Chinese sister website hougarden.com which are unavailable to private landlords. We can list on Trademe (discounted rate of $49 ex GST) and erect a sign in front of the property (free for North Shore properties; $75+GST elsewhere in Auckland).
For property viewings, we run a mix of open homes and individual appointments for potential tenants, working in with outgoing tenants, vendors and sales agents. During viewings we always accompany tenants, leading them through the property and showing how it would be a great home for them. We never give tenants the keys.

Our property managers will keep you in the loop with information on how many people are inquiring and viewing, plus any suggestions to assist with attracting the best tenant.

Our shortlist will include the most suitable tenants for your property. Our application form is thorough and contains the privacy waivers required to do background checks. We check references and can also run credit checks (highly recommended, credit checks are $18+GST per person). While the decision ultimately rests with you, we can help you to make a good choice. Once you've decided, we arrange a meeting with the prospective tenant.

After discussing all aspects of the tenancy and confirming the tenant is a great fit for your property, the sign up process is completed and we collect required monies. We will provide you with a copy of the tenant's application, identification, tenancy agreement and any other documentation

At time of signing the tenant pays Rentex the move in monies, usually by EFTPOS for payment certainty. Any rent we receive is paid out to you. We will lodge the bond on your behalf. The bond will have your name as the landlord. You will receive email confirmation once the bond has been received by the Government Bond Centre.

You can relay specific information about tenancy responsibilities and property care at this meeting. If you're unsure about what to do from here on, perhaps DIY management is not for you. Contact your Rentex property manager if you're interested in the 'hands off' solution - comprehensive property management.
