Services

Experience

We have over 25 years of combined experience in property management.

Over the years we’ve seen it all – we know how to handle every situation that can arise and have been to court numerous times.  The properties we manage are treated as though they are our own, when problems or issues are identified prompt action is undertaken to minimise any rental loss or property damage.

Tenant Selection

We run a ‘no surprises’ operation – below is a general guideline to our operational services.

Ensuring that:

  • All tenants are screened
  • References are checked
  • All required paperwork is completed and lodged with the relevant authorities
  • Credit checks are OK – checks are conducted through a specialized credit agency
  • Tenants sign a Tenancy Agreement to comply with the Residential Tenancies Act 1986

Rent Collection:

  • Rent which is collected in advance
  • Establishment of automatic payment facilities
  • Ensuring regular rental payments are received
  • Initiating remedial action with the Tenancy Tribunal should the need arise

Property Inspection:

  • An initial inspection to provide a detailed inventory of the property – photographs available if required
  • An inspection one week after letting the property, to follow-up on potential outstanding issues
  • Three further inspections per year, each giving you an inspection report, an in-depth management report and projected maintenance schedule (on average a minimum of 4 inspections per year)
