The Thrill of ‘Naked Letting’ has Arrived

‘Naked Letting’ is an entirely virtual service and offers a unique way for owners and tenants to start a new relationship.

Calling all private landlords in Auckland. If you are a hands-on self-managing Auckland property owner who wants to meet and choose your prospective tenants, but doesn’t want the hassle of all the admin, this is the service for you. We’re sorry it took us so long.

What we do

• Arrange professional photos

• Arrange viewings

• Vet and summarise tenants that you shortlist

• Create the tenancy and bond lodgement forms for you and your tenants to sign electronically.

What you do

• Meet and greet the prospective tenants at the viewings

• Tell us who you like

• Approve an application

• Take over the relationship once the tenancy agreement is signed.

Two-way interview

The revolution is here. Have you ever used a casual letting service only to find that you just wanted to meet the tenants yourself and get a good feel for the person who you’ll be having an ongoing relationship with?

At The Rental Bureau we believe that meeting the prospective tenants at a viewing is a two-way interview.

As a customer-focused property management company we take time at our viewings to talk to tenants and in addition to telling them about the property we tell them how we manage the property for them and for the owner too. Then the tenants can decide whether the home and our services are right for them.

Like a first date

This is the reason we have never offered the traditional casual letting service, whereby we select tenants for owners and then hand over the relationship. We really value the time spent at viewings, and see it as the starting point of a strong relationship. We think of it like a first date – you wouldn’t skip the date and jump straight into a relationship!

With this in mind, we’ve carefully developed and launched “Naked Letting”. This is an entirely virtual service, where we simply facilitate the introduction of tenants to owners and their properties, and make sure everything is done properly along the way.
