Rental Appointment FAQ
What is purpose-built rental?
Purpose-built rental is designed and built specifically as long-term rental accommodation. It is different from other types of rentals, such as condominiums or a strata, which may be available in the rental pool one year and not the next. The Amazing Brentwood Tower ONE purpose-built rental homes (Floors 5 – 32), are professionally owned and managed by SHAPE. Understanding the benefits of purpose-built rental housing will help you decide if it’s the right choice for your next home.
Purpose-built rental homes come with the security and stability of knowing your suite will not be taken off the market by your landlord unexpectedly. These homes will not be sold, removed from the rental market or taken over by the landlord for their own use.
Unlike a home you own, there are no strata fees or additional taxes to be paid. In addition, costly repairs and building wear and tear are not the responsibility of the tenant.
Residents can be sure that thorough screening of all tenants is conducted, ensuring safety and security at the building and fostering a sense of community among like-minded residents. Our on-site management team and Concierge staff provide dedicated service and attention with consistency in building operations.
How do I find current availability and pricing?
Availability changes each month as new units come available. For current availability and pricing, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if we have options that are within your timeline, needs and budget.
How are units assigned?
Available units are assigned to approved applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. To secure your unit, we recommend you submit an application for pre-approval on our website. Once approved, you will have the opportunity to select an available unit and/or visit the building to view the available or similar unit. To secure the home, we recommend providing the required deposits and completing your tenancy agreement as soon as possible.
