LJ Hooker Hamilton Rental Application Form

The rental process can be very daunting for some, especially if you have not done it for a while or if it is your very first time. We want to help you make this process a little easier by providing our rental application form on our website.

Remember you must view the property you wish to apply for, or at least have someone you trust view it for you. ( Please note due to COVID-19 this rule has changed slightly, please refer to our COVID-19 Operations page)  https://hamilton.ljhooker.com.au/about-us/covid-19-changes-to-our-standard-operation

All applications must be sent digitally. You will find the 1FORM application button at the bottom of the main body of text of the property you are looking at renting. It will also prefill details about the property you are applying for. Should you not be able to apply directly online a PDF application is available for download at the bottom of this page.

Unfortunately at this time we can not accept paper applications at inspections or in the office. Please scan through by email or fax your application to the address or number on the form. The required documentation must also be attached to the application so we can process them quickly.

An application is required from every person over the age of 18 that will be residing at the property.

  2. Birth Certificate or Medicare Card
