Private Property Rentals

Private Property South Africa
Julia Hinton

In July Private Property launched a paid rentals option for landlords wishing to

list their properties for rent on South Africa's busiest property website.

Since the start of online rentals, over 50 000 properties have been loaded by

owners and more than 2 million emails have been sent to prospective tenants who

specifically requested rentals in a particular area and price range.

Rental listings on the website have grown so much in popularity that it was

decided to offer a paid option (R150) allowing landlords to load up to 8

pictures of their property and write a detailed description. The listing also

includes detailed specifications that help to ensure that you get the right

people calling you. Another bonus is that your listing will automatically be map

linked. Landlords can download a standard lease contract and other useful

templates. Your listing stays on the website for one month or until you find a

tenant, with the option of extending the listing time later on.

Credit checking to verify prospective tenants is an essential step and this can

easily be done online. Private Property in partnership with Tenant Profile

Network (TPN) offers you one of the most comprehensive credit reports available.

For only R105.70 the report includes a HAWK enquiry, ITC as well as an Experian

report. If you go with the full house paid rental option, this report is

included in the fee.

There is still a free of charge rental listing option, which is simply a text

listing. You can list rentals in the following categories: house share, holiday

letting and residential rentals.

Listing your rental property with Private Property, on a tried and tested

marketing platform, is a hassle-free way of finding the right tenant.
