During the Period of September 1st through to April 30th each year, DKRA turnover most of its inventory to the local student orientated community here in Kelowna BC. Nearly all our vacation Rental stock are then placed into an 8-month rental lease program.
We cater for all of the community who are looking for rental accommodations during the normal school year – we sometimes on application, are able to extend our standard lease until may 15th for those that have courses finishing later in the year, have sporting commitments, or those just requiring a little bit more time to find their next rental location or destination. To that end, we accommodate, students, faculty and the general public.
If you are a student, you will most likely have to have a Parent or Guardian sign onto the lease with you, especially if you are under 25 years of age. For all applicants, we require basic details such as last address, landlord and some information on gross earnings. Each person named on a DKRA lease, must adhere to this application process for it to move forward.
We always ask that you submit your application with a 1st and 2nd choice of suite so that we may accommodate your requirements as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please remember, we take in a substantial amount of lease requests and have several applications come in for a single advertised suite. So please have a couple of choices in case you are not the first applicant for the suite in question.
DKRA operate on a first come first serve basis, and therefore our sitting tenants will always get priority on re-renting or substitute renting the following year. We do NOT guarantee that you will be able to come back the following year on any of our suites as we have to take in mitigating circumstances when applications are received. Applications are required for each year of rental, even if it’s your 4th year with DKRA, as any strata incidents, such as fines or warnings may count against you – we always advise you to be a good tenant so that you may rent from us the next year or receive a favorable reference for your next landlord.
