We ask that you view any property from the kerbside only initially. This will give you a general feel for the property and its location. To arrange an inspection, please telephone us on 9386 0004 or 0419 047 423 and our Leasing Manager will then make a suitable time with you to view the property.


Please take care when making your choice of rental premises, as you agree to take the property on “in its current state of repair” or “as is”. It is important to be aware that the landlord is under no obligation whatsoever to make any improvements to the property – ie install an alarm system, replace the floor coverings, conduct a re-paint etc.


Rental agreements are usually on a minimum 6 month basis and you will be required to sign a lease. The lease will require an initial payment equivalent to 7 weeks rent – 4 weeks rent as bond, a letting fee equal to one week’s rent and two weeks rent paid in advance. This initial payment must be paid either in the form of cash, bank cheque (not personal cheque) or direct deposit (cleared funds in our trust account). Make sure that you carefully read all the paperwork that your Leasing Manager has prepared and understand it, as you will be required to sign.


A Lease Agreement is a legally binding contract.


All of the above applies whether you rent a house, townhouse, apartment or unit.


When you find the right property, you will need to complete a Tenancy Application Form.


At Morgan-Sudlow & Associates we look for people that will look after the property as if it were their own, with financial stability, the ability to pay rent, and a good rental history. It is important to note we do not require the “Letting Fee” to be paid upon submission of an Application – we request that it be paid within 24 hours after acceptance.


Once you complete an Application, Morgan-Sudlow’s leasing team will conduct a review of the information you provided, contacting your personal references and employers. When all the checks are complete, we then submit your application to the landlord for a decision.


Under normal circumstances your application can be processed within 24 hours, as long as all the necessary details have been provided. Being unable to make contact with references may cause delays but we endeavour to process Applications as quickly as possible and notify you of the approval outcome.
