Rental Options

Kingston has a wide variety of rental alternatives, whether you are looking for a bachelor apartment or space to accommodate a family.  Renting can give you time to become familiar with a particular neighbourhood without making the commitment of purchasing a home. 

Most landlords in Kingston will ask you to sign a lease for one year, and to pay for the first and last month's rent when you move in.  A number of local accommodation providers such as hotels and bed and breakfasts offer short-term rental options - for more information please visit the tourism section of our website.

Property Management Firms

Real estate agents/agencies can also be a source of information on rental apartments, and Kingston has several property management firms that handle rental properties.

Please find below a partial listing of property management firms which specialize in rentals - a comprehensive list can be found in the Yellow Pages under Real Estate Management.
