Once a property has been identified:

  • We will negotiate with the landlord to secure the best terms for the contract including advising on the basic term and the commencement date, the availability of a break clause, the amount of deposit to be paid, and what items will be provided in the property and included in the rental.

  • We will also prepare a list of any repairs/defects/decoration works required before the commencement of the contract. We will check the premises prior to commencement to ensure they are carried out.

  • We can provide measurements of the property with room dimensions to assist with the selection of furniture. Advice on where to shop for curtains and furniture is also provided. Where a client is shipping furniture from overseas which has not yet arrived, we can assist in selecting rental furniture to be delivered to the apartment / house until their personal possessions arrive. This can be advantageous in allowing a family to settle in their new home as soon as possible and especially if there are children, this allows them to start making friends in their new environment right away, greatly assisting the entire relocation process.

  • Prior to the move in date we arrange appointments with the various utility companies and assist in having the accounts set up, as well as assisting with setting up internet, phone and cable TV services if required.

  • On the commencement date, we arrange the handover inspection where we walk through the property checking everything is clean and in good working order, checking all keys, manuals and remote controls are handed over and any necessary papers signed by the landlord to provide access to club facilities, if any. A report of all this is provided to each party and also to the HR in the case of a company lease.

  • At Executive Homes we take pride in the fact that our service does not stop with the handover of the premises. We can offer recruitment advice for the trailing spouse on where to start looking for a suitable job. For those who prefer not to work, we will suggest activities and charity work as appropriate. We are happy to follow up on any future issues and offer advice on anything from shopping tips to where to go for that special anniversary dinner. Many of us count clients from years gone by among our best friends, now all over the world!
