OUR 'WHY'

“WE INSPIRE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN!”

The Tenancy Skills Institute was developed in response to an identified need within our community. Property Managers and Agents told us they were increasingly working with tenants who do not have the basic level of skills required to sustain a tenancy. Many potential tenants do not even get a chance to prove themselves, because their application is not considered strong. This is even worse in areas with low vacancy rates.

In early 2017, inCommunity Inc. committed to developing a training package for potential tenants that would address this issue and create a new wave of tenants – people who were not only aware of their rights and responsibilities, but who could also effectively communicate with their landlords, clean properly and manage their finances.

The Tenancy Skills Institute aims to create ‘Tenants of Choice’. Graduates from the program have proven competency in the skillsets identified by Property Managers and Agents. This will give them a competitive advantage when applying for properties.

“People who complete this training will stand out as being ready for future challenges, and I would like nothing better than to be able to fast-track their application for a tenancy"

This is a great initiative and a very proactive approach to helping young people and the community secure a roof over their heads. As a local real estate agency we welcome any support to assist in training and educating tenants on their rights and responsibilities when renting a home.

Being able to tell a landlord that their prospective tenant has completed this course will give more landlords piece of mind when renting out their property. There has always been a gap between some tenants and maintaining properties correctly and the Tenancy skills Institute fills that gap.

It’s a great training program. Not everyone is privileged to a great upbringing and therefore lack the basic skills for life. The people I’ve meet during this program want to better themselves and the life they live. This in turn will help investors, better tenants mean less vacancies and repairs increasing their overall returns.
