Renting Process

  1. HMS homes will negotiate the deal including start date, price, how many cheques & any conditions with tenant and landlord.
  2. Once the deal is agreed, tenant gives a 5% deposit cheque in the name of the landlord to the broker and sends their Passport copy, visa copy and emirates ID copy.
  3. HMS homes will have the Landlords Title Deed copy, Passport Copy and Emirates ID copy (if POA then also need their passport, visa and Emirates ID copies) & proof that services charges have been paid.
  4. Tenancy contract will be drafted by HMS homes and emailed to both parties.
  5. Once contract agreed HMS homes will meet tenants to sign 3 original tenancy agreements, collect rental cheques, deposit cheque (if not already received) in name of the owner and 5% agency fee in name of HMS Homes Real Estate.
