Checking In

We need to have from you all of the monies due before you meet with our Inventory Clerk and normally you will have already signed the tenancy agreement. On the day you move in our Inventory Clerk will check you in, agree the condition of the apartment with you, read the meters, show you how the heating works, you will be able to ask questions on how to operate the various appliances in the apartment. You’ll receive a contacts information sheet so you know who to contact at our office if you have any problems or questions.
