In this guide, we'll walk you through the seamless and transparent process of renting a home with Open Doors, highlighting why we stand out as the best in the realm of property rentals.
Step 1: Register and Discover
The journey starts by sharing your preferences and details with us. Whether it's through our online platform, email, social media, phone, or even an in-person visit to one of our offices, we'll get you on our list for property updates. Our proactive approach ensures you receive tailored property recommendations that match your needs.
Step 2: View with Confidence
When you find a property that catches your interest, all you need to do is contact us! We arrange viewings for you, and the best part? We’ll accompany you during every viewing. Our property managers have an intimate understanding of each property we manage, offering you all the information and rental property advice you need to make an informed decision.
Step 3: Offer and Assurance
Once you've found the perfect place, it's time to make an offer. Send your offer to us via email, and we’ll take care of the rest. We present your offer to the landlord and have personal conversations to advocate for your position. You can review an example of our tenancy agreement and go through our renter's guide FAQ, ensuring complete transparency before you sign.
Step 4: Application and Approval
Completing the application forms and providing necessary identification is the next step. We perform comprehensive checks, ensuring that the process is thorough and efficient. Once your application is approved, you'll receive a draft agreement. Upon agreement, you can finalise the paperwork, pay your deposit and rent, and prepare to move into your new home!
Ethical Commitment: Attracting Responsible Landlords
Open Doors reputation is a magnet for landlords who value an ethical and conscientious approach. We foster close collaboration with tenants, maintain high property standards, and prioritise flexibility to meet your needs. Our commitment to responsible and respectful relationships truly sets us apart in the rental market.
Empowerment through Knowledge and Transparency
We invest in our team, paying above-average salaries and avoiding a commission structure. This empowers our property managers to treat each property as if it were their own, ensuring that you are placed in the right property for your needs. Our property managers never over promise or push unnecessary extras like rent insurance, providing you with only what's essential.
Strong Tenant-Landlord Relationships
One of the key differentiators of ours is the strong rapport we build with our tenants. At Open Doors, we maintain open lines of communication, ensuring that tenants feel comfortable reaching out for assistance whenever needed. Our dedication to getting things right is reflected in our relationship with landlords, who entrust us to provide top-notch service to their tenants.
Renting a home with Open Doors is more than just a transaction – it's an experience. From personalised property recommendations to ethical practices and transparent communication, Open Doors stands as a beacon of reliability and integrity in the realm of lettings. With us, you'll not only find a place to live but a partner that genuinely cares about making your renting journey a positive one.
