  • Community locations:
    • Local restaurants and cafés
    • Leisure and recreation centres

  1. Why are you moving?
  2. How many people will be living in the apartment?
  3. Can you provide references from previous landlords and employers?
  4. What do you do for a living?
  5. Will you have the first month’s rent and security deposit ready on move in day?

Asking the above questions will clarify any doubts and concerns that you may have about future tenants. For further expertise and knowledge, Breakwater Realty INC. is ready to answer your questions or assist you with property management services.
