How do I use the Rent. Save. Own. Program
To use the Rent. Save. Own. program you will need to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to finalize your purchase and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
What is Rent. Save. Own.
Rent. Save. Own is a program that was created by Drewlo Holdings and the Ironstone Building Company to help renters bridge the gap between renting and owning.
For each month that you rent with Drewlo Holdings, you will receive $350 - for a maximum of $10,000 - towards the purchase of a brand new home, condo or townhome from The Ironstone Building Company.
You do not need to enroll in this program, it is automatically set up the first day you begin renting with us.
What is UR Concierge? How Do I Sign Up?
As a way to increase tenant communication with their building manager, Drewlo has partnered with UR Concierge Services (UR CSI). By clicking on the "Concierge" button at the top right of Drewlo's menu, residents living in a Drewlo Holdings building can sign up for UR Concierge Services.
When signing up, residents must use a building code in order to access the services. The building code is the postal code of your building without spaces. For example, if you're living at 1420 Beaverbrook Avenue, then your building code is N6H5W5. It's important to note that the building code you put in, must match the building you're living in!
The UR Concierge portal is how Drewlo can communicate with you about building specific events such as: maintenance, emergency services (such as water shut offs), contests, and more! To learn even more about UR CSI, read our blog post here.
What does Drewlo Holdings require me to bring when I fill out an application?
In order to complete an application, the Drewlo Holdings building manager requires the prospective tenant to have:
- Money Order or Bank Draft (last months rent deposit)
- Post-Dated Cheque (1st months rent)
- Void Cheque - to arrange automatic monthly withdrawals on the first of the month
- Proof of income
- Paystubs, letter of employment with yearly income, T4, notice of assessment
- Colour copy of photo identification (and ID)
Are there any utilities included in my rent?
What utilities are included in your rent will be indicated on the building's page, under the main photo. Typically, heat and water are included.
Is the rent quoted on drewloholdings.com the rent for all of the apartments of that style?
On each of our building pages rental amounts are found as a "starting from" base rent, or as a range for a specific rental apartment style. Rent for each of our apartment suites are calculated based on: floor level, view, square footage, and amenities and upgrades (ie: granite or renovations).
Do I need renter's/tenant's insurance?
Drewlo Holdings does require our tenants to provide proof of Liability Insurance for no less than $1,000,000. A copy of your proof of coverage must be given to the building manager prior to receiving the keys to your unit. This proof of Liability Insurance must show the tenant's name, effective date, address (including unit number) insured, and coverage amount. Additionally, we recommend that our tenants have Content Insurance for their personal belongings, as Drewlo Holdings does not cover it.
Here is a link to the information your insurance company will need for your property.
