Tenant Welcome Pack

Welcome to Civium Property Group

Congratulations on securing your new home. On behalf of the Civium Property Management team, we look forward to being of service to you during your tenancy.


One of our primary goals as Property Managers’ is to retain long lasting tenants for our landlords. We value our tenants and ensure that any issues or concerns are resolved and we will do whatever we can to assist you to settle into your new home.


In order to assist with the smooth transition into your rental property, we have compiled a Tenant Welcome Pack. This pack includes a moving-in checklist, handy tenant information sheet, emergency repairs contact numbers, recycling and garbage collection calendar and important asbestos advice.


Should you have any questions or concerns now or throughout the tenancy, please do not hesitate to contact our team via phone or email and we will only be too happy to assist.


Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to continuing to meet your rental needs.
