Rental Enquiries

How to convert your initial enquiries into a successful rental later

This week we are dealing with property enquiries made by home seekers to rent a property; enquiries made whether via emails or social media networks or phone calls or physical visits. 

This week’s activity concerns mostly those home seekers with very limited incomes, low income earners, ordinary people and families, those who are making enquiries for properties where prospective tenants can part pay the rent and part claim housing benefit, etc.

Rental enquiries here should not be confused with a Property Enquiry Certificate  (PEC) which is a standard report on information (often required when buying or selling a property) regarding Statutory Notices and other legal orders and regulations that affect a property.

A rental enquiry is one of the initial steps in trying to find a property to rent.  If this initial step is badly handled, this would sometimes jeopardize the rest; meaning that everything could stop without one or both parties (those making rental enquiries and those responding to those enquiries to proceed further). 

This is why it is important to get this right from the beginning.  Particularly, when you are on limited earning income it is in your interest to well handle your property enquiries in order to maximise your rental chance and get your target property.

To proceed with rental enquiries, we are going to look at the following:

√ What preparations home seekers need to make before they start enquiring about a property to rent

√ Enquiries content (what you should or should not include in your enquiry and why)

√ How to follow your enquiry in order they can be converted into an effective buy

From the above general enquiries, we will then deal with specific enquiries related to home seekers’ target properties to rent.

How to enquire for and identify your target rental property

We all want to rent or live in ideal or target property.  But, can we afford it? Especially when one is on low income brackets, it could be unrealistic to get their target property outside their budget constraints.

This is why this week we are trying to work with home seekers, under the topic of rental enquiries, in helping them to bridge the gap between the requirements of their target property and affordability.  This work with them is also part of Home Relief’s Help to Rent.

Target property is the property that a particular home seeker is aiming at renting at a particular location, at a given market price and at a determined time. 

To support home seekers in achieving or reaching their goal/target property, the following items will be discussed together with them:

√ Target property rent versus affordable rent

√ Preferred location versus circumstantial location

√ Prospective landlords/ladies or letting agents

√ Types and sizes of properties

√ Tenancy terms and conditions

This Help to Rent is accessible to all types of home seekers: students, young working professionals, professional couples, families, universal credit and housing benefit claimants, retirees etc.

If you have a problem in making rental enquiries and or to find your target property, Home Relief can help you to improve the way you are making your enquiries and find your target property at affordable rent. 

You can work with Home Relief for your rental enquiries as Help to Rent is available to all home seekers.
