Yes, you can receive Tenant Applications online, through your Property Dashboard on our ReDIY site. We also have an automated process for you to do the reference checks.
Your potential tenant just needs to sign up to our site. It is free to do so.
After they have inspected the property, they sign back in, locate the property, and select "Apply". They will then have a form to completes, which is quite detailed. They will be required to complete their employment details and income details, previous rental history and personal references as well as their proof of identification.
Once completed the Application Form will arrive in your Property dashboard.
This is then available for you to process. An automated reference check can be sent to their employer and their previous real estate agent or landlord. This needs to be followed up by you, as Agents, in particular, are notoriously slow to respond.
The reference checks will be returned to your property dashboard. there is also a star rating that you can assign to each application to assist you in the selection process. If you still have any doubts, it is well worth conducting a TICA Check on the applicants. This is a low cost and can also be done through your property dashboard. it is just another check that will give you peace of mind, as it discloses any previous delinquent rental history.
If the application is declined by you, simply select "Decline" and a notification will be sent to the applicant. If you approve the application, a notification will be sent to the successful applicant/s advising them of the next steps that need to be attended to. You will also receive an email advising you of what you need to organise between yourself and the tenant/s.
Visit our "How To" section for instructions on how to process the application.
