Signing of the lease agreement
We enter into lease agreements that fully comply with the Rental Housing Act No 50 of 1999 as well as the Consumer Protection Act of 1 April 2011 for a 12 month period from 1st of December until the 30th of November annually.
A thorough inspection is done at the commencement and termination of a contract in order to:
- assess the condition of the apartment before a contract is signed;
- assess damages caused by the tenant and have it repaired from the deposit;
- recommend to the owner, any wear and tear reparations and/or improvements deemed necessary to maintain the value of the property. The Consumer Protection Act also expects from an owner to keep the leased premises in a proper condition.

Finding a Tenant only
Where an owner prefers to manage the property themselves, we would only find and screen the tenant, draw up the lease agreement, undertake a pre tenancy inspection & hold the deposit in trust.
A once-off finder fee is applicable.
Our rates are extremely competitive in order to offer our clients complete peace of mind while ensuring that the value of their properties are maintained and improved.
