Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.
Finding a property
The first step is to apply for a RentalPassport.
What is a RentalPassport?
Quite simply, your passport to your New Home.
RentalPassport™ provides any potential landlord or letting agent with the assurance that you're serious, financially sound, and likely to prove a good tenant.
Think of it as your 'letter of introduction'. It captures all the information a landlord or letting agent might need before arranging a viewing - plus it acts as a mini pre-screening, proving your trustworthiness as a tenant from the get-go. A RentalPassport™ accelerates the whole viewing and renting process.
How it works
Having a RentalPassport™ puts you in a stronger position and speeds up the process of securing your new home.
If you're the perfect tenant, you should stand out from the crowd. Like a job applicant with a great CV, filling out a RentalPassport™ will prove that you're serious about renting.
Capturing all the information a landlord or letting agent needs before arranging a viewing, having a RentalPassport™ speeds up the entire viewing and renting process and gets you ahead of the competition. Quicker viewings. Quicker move-ins.
Plus, once it's done, it's done - however many properties you want to view.
All we need from you is your viewing availability, some basic information, and a form of identification for a preliminary reference check. Now you're armed with a handy document that sets you apart from other prospects.
Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement. Please note that for your safety and peace of mind:
- All of our managed properties are Gas Safe certificated and inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety
- All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
To view our selection of available properties to let please use the Property Search boxes above. To register your requirements please click on the Register/Contact Us tab.
Viewings can be arranged once you have completed your RentalPassport.
We will always do our very best to accommodate a time and date to suit you. You will invariably be accompanied by a member of the Aroha Team who will help to answer any of your questions.
