Tenants Guide

If you are considering renting a property, our team of trained professionals are here to guide you through every step of the process. Below is our seven step guide to successfully renting:

Step 1

Register your interest

The first step to finding the right property is to register with us either by calling into our Westmount Road office, emailing or phoning us. You can discuss your property requirements with a member of our knowledgeable lettings team.

Step 2

Finding the right property

Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements, we will notify you of properties that match your criteria. We will also keep you constantly up-to-date when the latest properties become available.

Step 3

Consider a managed property

An increasing number of tenants insist on renting fully managed properties for complete peace of mind. Renting a managed property has the benefit of our dedicated property management team to handle your day-to-day issues and emergency contact details should aproblem arise.

By renting through Westmount Estates, you will also have the assurance that your property is fully compliant with all safety regulations (including Gas Safety, Electrical Safety and Furniture and Furnishings Acts etc.).

Step 4

The key to successful viewings

In order to secure a property we recommend an early viewing. We will accompany you throughout so that we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary.

Step 5

Making an offer

Once you have identified a suitable property you will be required to complete an application for tenancy where you may state any special conditions of the offer and provide details for your references. We will then communicate this offer to the landlord. We will also take an administration fee and holding deposit.

Step 6

Offer agreed

If your offer is accepted we will organise the following regardless of whether your property is managed:

  • Collect references from the referees that you have provided
  • Arrange signing of the Tenancy Agreement
  • Collect you moving in payment (rent + deposit)
  • We will arrange the check-in and inventory

Step 7


Upon completion, you will be given a set of keys and if your property is managed we will provide you with your dedicated property manager’s contact details
