Even if you’re not renting your first apartment, finding and renting the right suite can be an intimidating process.
Our easy to follow guide is here to help you through the process!
1. Find the right suite
Use our online search page to find the right apartment for you. Search by area, rent range, number of bedrooms, and desired amenities to find right home for you.SEARCH
2. View the apartment
Contact the building caretaker or leasing agent to view the suite. We do require all applicants view the exact suite they are applying for before submitting an application to make sure there are no surprises. If you are living elsewhere and unable to view the suite in person, you can have somebody you trust view the suite on your behalf. If you don’t know anybody locally who can do that for you, please contact our leasing agent to discuss other options.
3. Apply for the suite
For your convenience, Towers Realty Group offers online applications, plus in person applications at our head office.
When applying, you’ll need to include your security deposit (half of one month base rent), plus required supporting documents. We’ll need:
- completed Reference / Credit Inquiry Consent Form
- proof of ability to pay the rent – this could be
- Confirmation of employment on company letterhead stating gross income and length of employment
- Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency
- Copies of bank statements
We’ll need a complete application from each person above the age of 18 who will be residing in the suite.
If you’re a post-secondary student, you’ll also need to provide proof of enrolment that includes your name and the name of your college or university.
Please note that we do accept multiple applications for the same suite, and applications are only considered once all required information has been submitted. Completed applications are processed in the order received.
Once the complete application has been received, we’ll let you know within three business days whether you have been approved for the suite. If your application is not approved, we’ll do what we can to see if we have any other available apartments that may be a good fit for you.
4. Sign the lease
After your application has been approved, we’ll schedule a lease signing with one of our leasing administrators at our office. At this point, we’ll go over the lease with you and answer any questions you may have. This is also your opportunity to purchase tenants’ insurance. Tenants’ insurance is not required, but it is highly recommended.
5. Schedule a move-in
The next step is to schedule a move-in with your new caretaker. Simply give them a call, and make an appointment to pick up your keys. During your move in, you’ll do a walk-through of the unit and complete the move-in condition report with your caretaker.
Now you can start moving in! If your building has an elevator, you may have to book the elevator for your move in.
6. Sign up for the Resident Portal
Now you’re all moved in and enjoying your new home. Sign up for the Towers Resident Portal for easy rent payment options and to stay up to date with what’s going on in your building.
