Applying for a Property

How do I apply for a property?


If you are interested in applying for any of our properties, we firstly require each applicant to complete a tenant application form which can be found at the foot of this page. The form/forms are to be returned to info@scobie-property-management within the timeframe outlined at your viewing. The applciation will be reviewed & you will then receieve an email within two working days to confirm if the application has been successful. If your application has been approved, the email you will receive will outline the next stage of the applcaition process, which will cover the referencing documentaion you are required to provide, the details for the deposit transfer & the instructions for the signng of the tenancy agreement.

What references do I require?

Please find downloadable copies of the tenant reference & gurantor form at the foot of this page. Scobie Property Management requires references for all tenants before they move in to a property. The referencing process takes five – seven working days. We require a current or previous landlord reference and your full-time Employer’s reference & credit checks will be completed on all professional applciants & each respective guarantor for student applications.

Student applications?

A guarantor must be provided for all student tenants who are not in full time employment. He or she will guarantee the rental for that individual tenant for the duration of the tenancy. 

When can I move in?

A time will be arranaged with you to handover your keys on the start date of the lease. This can be between 9:00 and 17:30 Monday to Sunday.
