Find a property that suits your needs on Village House's website.
Contact us about the property you are interested in by phone or by clicking on "Enquire Now." If you are in a hurry or want to inspect the property, contact us by phone for a smoother process.


Choose a property and floor plan

Village House provides various plans to suit your needs, from rooms ready to move into, to options allowing changes to the floor plan. Choose the option that best fits your lifestyle.


Inspection and Visit

You'll be able to visit the property after you have scheduled the day and time of the inspection.
Inspect the property, check out the size and lighting of the rooms, take a look at its surroundings, feel the atmosphere of the area.
Please take note that if 30 minutes have passed after the scheduled time and no one arrives, the manager will have to move to the next appointment and you will need to reschedule the visit.


Application and Screening

If you bring all documents on the inspection day it is possible to proceed with the application right there.
If the application passes the screening process, the next step is signing of the contract.


Contract and Move-in

You can move in right after finalising your contract and the preparation of the property is complete.
There is no lottery system, so you can move in right away if the room is unoccupied.
