In Vancouver, most rental properties have a standard procedure with every potential rental applicant. You must fill out an application and your credit history, past and previous landlords and employment will be thoroughly checked. Once your application for the property has been approved and you are starting to get ready for the big move in date, it’s time to make a list of everything you need to do to be ready. Often when you first look at a place, you can’t visualize the space in terms of your own furnishings and how they will fit into the specific rooms. It’s always a good idea, to ask for the room measurements ahead of time to make certain the room sizes can accommodate your personal belongings.

If not, don’t try and make them fit or else you will end up with a very crowded uncomfortable living space. If you absolutely cannot part with some of your prized treasures then store them. Vancouver Property Managers have a long list of great storage companies available.
