“I’ve been looking at a lot of property listings on the internet. Is there a reason the lease length for a rental isn’t usually advertised?”
Feature agent: Tricia Gilbert, Principal, Licensee and Property Manager at Next Level Property Management Services.
See the rental property listings Next Level Property Management Services currently have listed on Rent.com.au.
We asked Principal, Licensee and Property Manager at Next Level Property Management Services, Tricia Gilbert about understanding the way real estate agents advertise a property’s lease length.
“I would say this has just been an oversight by the agent,” Tricia said.
“It’s normally in an autofill box on the advertising program, but it can be omitted.”
Familiarise yourself with the area before you sign
Are you planning to move into a property in an area where you haven’t lived before? When you attend a property viewing, make sure you ask the real estate agent or landlord about the neighbourhood.
For example, you could ask about the location of the supermarkets, public transport routes, schools, restaurants, movie theatres, and post office.
If the property you’re looking at on Rent.com.au does not have a lease length listed, you can contact the Property Manager or Landlord by clicking the ‘Enquire’ button below the photos on the ad.
