In-House Maintenance Service
We employ a certified former builder as part of our property management team, and the maintenance service provided most definitely keeps all repairs up to date. This ensures that little problems don’t become larger and more costly problems.
After EVERY routine inspection, minor maintenance required is carried out on the spot and major maintenance organised immediately. If a more specialised repair is required we have a range of services just a phone call away.
This gives you peace of mind in the knowledge your valuable asset is well looked after and in sound condition for future rentals AND maximises your financial return.
Inspections are conducted quarterly. This gives you peace of mind that we are constantly checking the maintenance and state of repair of the property. Follow up Calls and Reports are provided immediately thereafter.
We work with tenants towards a NO arrears policy as this benefits both the owner’s bottom line and the tenant’s future rental capability. We have low Arrears as we work with the tenants daily using an SMS system which keeps tenants reminded if they fall behind.
Life shows us that things don’t always go to plan in someone’s life – changes to employment and relationships definately impact some tenants’ ability to pay rent on time. Rest assured though that we will constantly manage these situations as best we can, with your instructions all the way, to get the best outcome for you.
Regular Rent Reviews
Rents are reviewed half yearly and appraised with the market average. We make the suggestion to review the rent and give you the option to change or not.
Choose your rental payment time frame
We offer twice monthly or monthly rental payments – whatever suits you.
It is worthwhile to take a minute or two to research and consider Landlord’s insurance. Your building insurance may not cover all of the aspects and situations of renting out your property. Landlord specific insurance, for as little as $1/day (est) covers you for tenant-related risks including loss of rental income, and loss or damage by tenants to your building and contents. If you need assistance in this area, just let us know.
