Application Process

Application Process

    This is an application process; following the steps below does not guarantee you the property and multiple applications may be made at certain times for any property. Should you be unsuccessful in securing the property we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you and either put you forward for your next choice or give you the option to transfer your application and supporting documents to another available property (please note that guarantor will need to complete their form again with the new property). We keep paper applications for 14 days before we shred them, and our applications website would only hold your personal information for 3 months of last submission.

    VIEWING THE PROPERTY
    Viewing the property is very important for prospective tenants to understand what is and isn’t included with the property. If you have any questions once you have left the viewing, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to answer them as best as we can. To apply you must have viewed the property yourself or had someone you trust to view on your behalf. Please note the photographs shown within any advertisement may have been taken whilst a tenancy was active in the property and as a result you should not rely on these as an accurate representation of furnishings and items included in the agreement. Provided it is available, the current inventory of items included in the property can be requested from our office.

    APPLYING FOR THE PROPERTY AND BEING SHORTLISTED
    To apply for the property, simply go to our website at www.southsideapplications.com (please make sure you have the supporting documents outlined below ready to upload), or if you do not have internet access then complete the Tenant Detail Form (TDF) at the PRINTABLE FORMS SECTION (one per tenant required) and hand/scan/post into our office along with the supporting documents and guarantor form (if applicable – if your income is any less than 2.5 times what your share of the rent is then you will require a guarantor). The guarantor should also earn in the region of 2.5 times the rent they are guaranteeing. We will let you know within approximately 3-6 working days whether you have been shortlisted by the landlord. Please note that this does not guarantee you the property. Please do not give money to our viewers or any other person until you have been accepted for the property.
    Should you provide false/forged information, your application will be declined and we reserve the right to report to the relevant authorities.

    THE GUARANTOR IS ALSO REQUIRED TO E-SIGN THE TENANCY AGREEMENT SHOULD YOU BE ACCEPTED FOR THE PROPERTY.

    There is also the option to pay the first 4 months and the last 2 months rent, then this would eliminate the need for a guarantor for that period.

    The supporting documents are required on initial application when an online application, and within 2 days of being shortlisted for the property when doing a paper application, otherwise your application will be assumed withdrawn (unless communication is made to state otherwise).
