RENTING WITH SUMMIT - WHAT TO EXPECT
When renting with Summit, our goal is to make the rental process as transparent and stress-free as possible. Here is what to expect:
Step 1: Application
Once the tenant has selected the unit they desire, a building representative will provide them with an application that must be completed. It is important to fill out the application as much as possible as an incomplete application can slow the process down.
Step 2: Lease
Once the necessary verifications have been completed and the tenant(s) has been approved, the next step is the signing of the lease. This appointment must be made with the building representative. Note that at Summit we use the standard lease forms provided by the Régie du Logement. The tenant should ensure to have the following for this appointment:
1. Two picture ID (Passport, Driver's License, Medicare Card, etc...) 2. The first month's rent (Cheque or Cash) 3. Proof of tenant liability insurance (Minimum coverage of $1,000,000)
In the building rules, which will also be signed at this time, you will notice a clause regarding liability insurance. This is a requirement for the entire term of the lease and keys will not be provided to a new tenant without a proof of insurance.
It is also important to note that if the first month's rent is paid in the form of a cheque, the cheque must be dated on the same day as the lease signing appointment.
Step 3: Reception of keys
Once the lease has been signed, the first month's rent paid and the proof of insurance provided, the keys will be prepared. When receiving the keys, the tenant and building representative will immediately proceed with a general inspection of the unit. This inspection includes the floors, walls, bathrooms, doors, appliances and more. Any deficiencies (if any) will be noted and addressed within a reasonable delay by the building administration.
Step 4: Move-in
It is very important that the administration be notified at least 72 hours in advance of the desired move-in date. This will allow the administration to ensure that no other moves occur simultaneously and that the elevators are properly protected to avoid damages.
