    The nightmare rental market in Adelaide

    Hi all, Hope you are all safe and well (and everyone back home is too). My family and I relocated from the UK to Adelaide (Henley Beach) early this year (2020) and have been settling in since. We've been trying to find a place to rent in the "competitive" housing market here in Adelaide; naturally with a kid and dogs it seems pretty discriminatory straight off the bat which makes the outrageous process of renting even more so, mass house viewings, umpteen forms to complete, referencing, payslips and seemingly no rights as a tenant don't sit too well with me but I'm told that this along with many other things is simply "how it is over here". We're actively looking for a long-term rental ideally with the following: 3-4 bedrooms 1-2 living areas 2 bathrooms Aircon and preferably West of the CBD. Must accept a family with a child (14) and two small dogs. Zero interest in mass viewings, long waits, long applications or other such none-sense, if your place ticks the above then we're happy to view and move around January 2021, we're a very clean, respectful family who are just interested in getting on with things, life's too short for the none-sense. Thanks for reading. MonstrousChicken

  3. good day to all, We recently moved to Adelaide and are looking for a 2 bedroom rental property on the fringe in Adelaide via the usual property portals, realestate.com.au etc. I was wondering if it is acceptable to put in applications for more than one property at one time? Anyways, there is no guarantee that either of my applications will be accepted. Multiple applications at one time can save me waiting time for response and also offer me more options to choose from. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
  4. My partner and I will be moving to Adelaide early 2018 and are trying to narrow down with area to live in when we first arrive. We would probably initially look to signing a short rental agreement of about 6 months before we take the plunge and buy a house. My partner has secured a job as a GP in the Para Hills area and can drive, not usually minding a commute of around 20/25 minutes. I, however, am awkward and cannot drive, so am dependant on public transport. I think we would prefer to be somewhere with a train station for easy and quick transport into the city, as, at least initially, we would love to get into town to sample all the great restaurants. We would like somewhere fairly smart-ish, safe and clean. From the research I have done North Adelaide or Croydon seems to fit the bill. Would anyone happen to have any recommendations which would be best, or even a secret third option? Any heads-up about no-go areas would be greatly appreciated too. Ofolopomus

  9. Hi guys don't know if this has been covered before, but here goes... We have seen a nice home on realestate.com.au in Port Noarlunga that we would like to rent long term and move into when we arrive in mid April. The agent obviously wants a close friend to inspect it on our behalf, So one my close friends in Adelaide will be doing just that this weekend. What should we get in a 3 bed roomed 2 bathroomed home in the $350 range? for that price e.g should it have air-conditioning in every room? dishwasher? I know this is not the ideal situation where we ourselves won't see the house before we sign on the dotted line but I would like to have the security of knowing we already have a home in adelaide when we arrive. Would really appreciate any pointers. Thanks
  10. Hi, We are hoping to move to Adelaide around May or June 2015, relocating from KL for my husband's work. We have hardly any furniture. What is the difference in price/availability of furnished v unfurnished properties in the Eastern Suburbs? We would be looking there first due to proximity to my husband's work. What is generally the standard of furnishing in furnished properties? Do they include TVs generally? Do unfurnished properties include large kitchen appliances like washing machines and fridges? Is there much good second hand furniture available and any recommendations about where to find it? THanks for your help with my questions!
  11. Very neat and tidy 3 bed unfurnished town house with approx 7 months lease left, $430 per week, direct access to the beach, balconys, robes, garage sunrises and sunsets, views of the ocean and the hills. Low maintenance garden with a large sail shade, viewing is highly recommended. http://raywhitewestlakes.com.au/sa/west-lakes-shore/408768/ inspection is on Saturday 8th nov at 10am pm me if you'd like to view before then.
  12. We're breaking the lease on our beautiful 3 bedroom home (moving interstate). It's 100m back from Brighton beach - perfect for walking to in 30 seconds on a hot summer's day. It's zoned for (excellent) Brighton Secondary School and Brighton OR Seacliff Primary Schools. Photos don't really do it justice. Contact me here if you would like more photos. http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-sa-brighton-410784659
  13. Hi Peeps, we are breaking our lease in the ever popular suburb of Port Noarlunga as we have finally bought our own little piece of Australia! We are looking to be out by 16th October at the latest as we get our keys on 18th September but want to take our time as we have a couple of things we have to do to the house first before we move in. So entry to the house can be just before this date or on. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom property @ $390 p.w. within a 5 minutes walk to Port Noarlunga Primary School and under a 10 minute walk to both Christies and Port Noarlunga Beach. 20 minute walk to Colonnades shopping centre and again under 10 minute walk to Beach Road, obviously all a lot less if you are driving. A very central property for everything and great neighbours too. It has a gas combustion heater to the lounge area (carpet), a dining/bar area (wooden floor), large dining kitchen (wooden floor) with fairly modern units with gas hob and electric oven, laundry with door access leading to decking area in enclosed good sized garden, large shed (other used by owner). Master bedroom (carpet) with 4 piece ensuite including spa bath, 2 other double bedrooms (carpeted) with sliding robes and additional double bedroom (wooden floor) currently used as an office/music room. The lounge has vaulted ceilings and the home is air conditioned. The bathrooms are modern and the home has been renovated but still retains character as it is not a new build. It has a drive through car port with auto roller doors which leads through to the garden and a half moon drive way. We have lived in this home for just over a year and half now and have enjoyed our time here. Both the owners and agent are easy to get along with and very quick to act should there be any problems which to be honest haven't been many. We also have our beloved german shepherd with us in this home and the previous tenants who we took over the contract from here had cats, so I am pretty sure that pets will be negotiable again providing you do look after the property and repair any damage. Feel free to ask questions and I will answer as best I can, any genuine enquiries will have to go through the agent who will be contactable from Monday as she is off today. Owner has been notified and is happy for me to do this to help find a new tenant, but they will have to go through the normal application process. Thanks for looking and good luck Cx
  14. Available from 9th September, 1 year old 3 bed house walking distance to Marion shopping centre and Brighton Beach. Open inspection this Saturday (23rd August) at 11am! More details here http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-sa-warradale-413803903 It's been a fab first home for us in Oz but time to put down roots so we've bought a place.
  15. http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-sa-munno+para+west-409126375 very good landlord / rea. Only had 2 inspections the last 10 months. Available from 8th of October.
  16. My family and I are looking for a 3 bedroom house with a granny flat that contains a bathroom and kitchen. Between $350 to $400 a week. We have great rental history and have very good referrals. Please contact me via pm. thanks, Ruth
  17. Hi there, We've found a private rental but are renting directly from the landlords and not via agents. We're going over to discuss the weekly rent (they originally told us $450 but have since seen another agent who's told them it's worth $500 so we're hopefully meeting halfway) and they've now mentioned that we'll also be discussing water fees (they have a pool and mentioned re-filling it) and possibly a handyman maintenance fee. I've been on the government rental advice pages and know that the landlords are liable for all sewage costs but what's the 'norm' for water fees from landlords? I thought it was simply that tenants are liable for all usage. Also is it reasonable for tenants to have to pay for the handyman maintenance fees - again, I thought it was the landlords responsibility to maintain the property. The weekly rent is already at the top end of our budget and we've never had a pool before so don't want to sign up to high unexpected running costs. It's a salt chlorinated pool - they said we could pay a fee for maintenance or maintain ourselves but we haven't yet got a clue what's involved - i.e. will we need to pay for expensive chemicals to clean it?! Any advice greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    Jobs and Rentals

    Hello all We are now in the 6 months leading up to our move, flights and short term accommodation are booked and it is starting to feel real. I am finding it in equal parts exhilerating and terrifying but thanks to being a long term lurker on these forums I know this is normal and to be expected. Anyway, a couple of questions about jobs in Adelaide and on long term rentals. I have heard mixed opinions on applying for jobs in Aus from the UK - I work in HE and have applied for around 12-15 posts at a similar level to what I do in the UK over the last few months, mainly to throw my hat in the ring and test the water and with the hope that a solid job offer would enable us to move over even faster. However, despite the fact a lot of these jobs were less technically skilled than what I currently do I have not even had a snifter of a positive response, just a continuous stream of 'you were not successful' emails from the various HEIs. So, I know this could be that I have just not made it through shortlisting (although I do find this surprising for such a high volume of applications) but I wonder whether being still in the UK has a bearing on the decision? What are people's experiences with this? Every so often I see a post on here where someone got the job from the UK and that is making me a bit nervous as to why I am not getting anywhere with my applications. I am assuming that it is the minority of people who actually secure work before arriving? Anyway - leading on from this, it seems unclear as to whether you can secure a long term rental without securing a job first - can anyone shed any light on this? I would have thought it was compulsory to have an offer of work but some posts seem to suggest that it has not been part of the process as long as you have landlord references and the compulsory 100 points. I have booked short term accommodation for 8 weeks on the basis that I thought you would have to have a job to get anywhere with a rental but I am now wondering if this is in fact true? Any help/comments greatly appreciated. Ali
  19. Hi everyone, My OH and I are arriving in Adelaide on 10th October and our dog will be arriving mid-Dec. We were just wondering if it's easy to find a long term rental that is dog friendly? Has anyone had any exeperience of this lately? We're looking to pay up to about $530pw in the Henley/Grange/Glenelg areas hopefully - do you think we'll have any problems finding something? I've seen a lot of lovely houses on the net but a lot say no pets - want a new/modern house though! We have been renting with our dog for 2 years in the UK with no problems and can get references from our current landlord. Any advice or tips would be very much welcome!! Thanks Carly & Ray
  20. Hi peeps, just wondering if there is anybody on here looking to break their lease or at the end of it. We are looking from Beach Road/Christies Beach to Murray Road/Port Noarlunga area. Our lease is due to run out in our current rental at the end of June and the landlord is not renewing it as there are quite extensive repairs needing done to it (not our fault, honest!) We are in Port Noarlunga at the moment and don't want to move our daughter to another school again and as I don't drive so another area can't be considered. We need the minimum of a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property and one that will accept dogs. If it's a 4 bedroomed, then all the better! We can take over lease a bit earlier if that helps too. Give me a yell if you are or know of anybody who is looking to do this. Cheers me dears Cx
  21. Hello This is our first post so please bear with us! We are newly married and are moving to Adelaide for at least a year. We are arriving 8th August 2012 ( leaving it late to post but only just got recommended this fantastic forum - already picked up loads of useful pointers). We would love some advice on arranging a long term rental, ideally we would like to live next to the beach in somewhere like Henley beach, somerton, Brighton etc or wherever people recommend. We don't really know Adelaide just what we've picked up from guide books and the web. We both have jobs sorted so that's all good it's just accommodation we're concerned about. Any advice would be great, especially about fully furnished accommodation and how to find it? Even if we could take over from someone and buy their furniture or something? Anyway if someone could advise would be fantastic, we can't wait for our trip to Adelaide it sounds amazing plus it's kinda our honeymoon!! Best wishes Simon and Jess
  22. Hi Myself and my fiance are currently looking for a place to rent, which sounds easy enough except we hace an 8month old puppy and not many places allow pets! We are currently renting at Henley Beach but the place is getting demolished end of June so we are looking for something asap to rent until Feb 2013. Our dog is really great in the house, we have left her in the house with access to the back yard every day while we work for months and we have never come home to any toilet accidents or damaged furniture etc. only my shoes which she seems to love...!! She actually spends most of her time sleeping as she has gotten into a routine and she gets up for her walk with us after work. We are looking for a place witha back yard wether it be a unit/house/studio/granny flat, it just has to have somewhere secure whaere we can pop a dog house for charlotte to sleep in through the day. We are willing to pay $240 a week MAX for a place. We both work full time so rent is always paid on time and we are very reliable tennants- can provide a reference from current rental. We have all bond money and a few weeks rent up front right now, just need a place to stay! We will continue looking but thought an ad might help us to get the word out Hope someone can help us! Thanks Amy, Craig and Charlotte.
  23. Hi there, I live in a small apartment block in Glenelg (5 in total) and our neighbour is about to move out this week so thought I'd post the ad for anyone looking in this area. It's a gorgeous 1880's building with lots of character, open fire places, polished wood floors etc. The neighbours are all quiet and friendly (not just saying that cos I'm one of them!) Location is amazing - it's just 150m to the beach (just south of Glenelg jetty) and a 7 minute walk to Mosely Square. It's one min walk to the main bus route through Glenelg too. Being away from Jetty Road you don't hear any noise from the pubs, but you're still super close to walk to the restaurants, shops, bars etc. It's going for $350 a week - it's a two bedroom plus sunroom which we use as a study/spare bedroom in our apartment with similar layout. All the rooms are huge - it's not your typical two bed apartment. It'd suit a single professional, couple or a small family. Check out pics here: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/glenelg/apartment-unit/glenelg-spacious-character-2-bedroom-appartment-close-the-beach/1002535795 Nothing in this for me except hoping to find awesome neighbours for our lovely little building! We bought our place in this block 18 months ago and love it, hope someone else would love living there too. Happy to answer any general questions about the building/area.

  25. Hi All, We're moving to Adelaide, arriving 9th March and are looking for furnished accommodation initially for two weeks, after that we'll looking for a longer term rental. There are five of us, two adults and three children. Not realising the Festival and Fringe are on I'd not booked anywhere, thinking I could do it soon before arrival but now I'm trying to find somewhere and finding everywhere is booked up. So I'm really hoping someone can help out and let me know if they know anywhere in Adelaide where I can find furnished accommodation for four/five from around March 9th, though I could be flexible on the date if necessary. Thanks! Stuart.
