The Letting Process

You are here: Tenants » The Letting Process

Our objective is to make the letting transaction as transparent and stress free as possible. Like everything in life preparation is the key to swift success. Try to have documents such as current employment and landlord references copied when you start your search. Your Photo ID and your PPS number will also be useful. Then its just a matter of following a few simple steps to complete the business.

How Does The Letting Process Work?

Step 1 - Use our Search feature to browse our current listings.

See something that interests you? Then call us on (01) 4968111 or send us an email requesting an immediate viewing. The direct email address of the negotiator handling the letting will be found in the details section of the property. Looking for something different? Tell us about it – register here and get instant notification when we’ve found it for you.

Step 2 - The search begins.

Now that we have a clear knowledge of your requirements, our email alert system will keep you updated on new listings that match your criteria. As soon as you receive details of a property that interests you, we would recommend that you book an inspection without delay.

Step 3 - Viewings Image

Step 3 - Viewings

Our negotiator will accompany you on viewings. This presents a further opportunity for you to discuss your specific property needs. Viewings can be arranged at convenient times such as lunchtime, after work or weekends. Feel free to take a friend or a partner along with you to view the property.

Step 4 - Decision time Image

Step 4 - Decision time

A property can be reserved for you by placing a small booking deposit ( €300 - €500 approx) with us. Next we require written employment and previous landlord references. On acceptance by the landlord we will arrange an appointment for you to sign three important documents (i) the lease agreement (ii) the bank standing order ( for future rent payments) and (iii) the PRTB form. – a government tenancy registration requirement.

Step 5 - Security deposit and rent collection. Image

Step 5 - Security deposit and rent collection.

When you sign the lease agreement we will require a security deposit from you - usually the equivalent of one month’s rent. We will also require the first month’s rent in advance. The security deposit and first month’s rent must be paid by bank draft or in cash. Payment by cheque is not acceptable. Your security deposit will be passed over to the landlord and held in trust for you pending the satisfactory return of the property at the end of the tenancy. Deductions may be made for the disposal of waste, breakages or damage to the property or if cleaning and repainting is required.

Step 6 - Completion Image

Step 6 - Completion

Once the lease document is signed, then its just a matter of transferring the utility accounts (electricity, gas and telephone) into your name. You can now collect the keys and move into your new home. During the tenancy, we will of course be available to answer any query that you may have. When the time comes to move out, we will again assist you with the correct process and apply to have your security deposit returned to you. Minimum termination notice periods are set down by the Residential Tenancies Act 2004. You will find more details of these in the PRTB.
