Hi there,

Just copy pasted from the sticky by Dolly....

Info Pack for rental

If you have a relative in Australia ask them to write a character reference
Copy of bank statements/utility bills/mortgage statements
Get a reference from UK estate agent stating how well our house has been maintained and what kind of people you are
If you have a rented, ask the estate agent for a character reference stating that you paid rent regularly and on time every month
When applying for a rental, write a covering letter explaining why you currently don’t have a job (i.e. just landed). 6. Mention in it you’ve had a mortgage for ‘X’ years and you have PR/or you’ve rented for ‘X’ years etc
Take passports with you
Front up with cash for 3 months advance rental (we did, but it wasn’t needed). There are usually quite a few people going for the same property so offering to pay in advance may clinch it for you

Cheers

Speaking as a landlord in Melbourne the agent is usually concerned that you will be able to pay on time and that you will look after the place - so any evidence that proves any of the that will be good.

Hi richie,

Have a look at the two "A list of things......" stickies at the top of the forum page. Both have info on renting.

Hi KAZ do you know of any good places
to rent in Melbourne.
We let out our property through Central Equity since it's on the Southbank and it's taken for the next 11 months :) I think they only deal with city apartments so it depends on where and what you are looking for.

Regards,
Karen
