Why Do You Need A Property Manager?
When dealing with a rental property an owner or agent needs to be fully aware of the constantly changing legislation governing the industry. Property Management in itself is regulated by six different state and federal legislations:
- The Residential Tenancy Act
- Property Agents and Motor Dealers Act
- Privacy Act
- Property law Act
- Trade Practices Act
- Racial Discrimination Act
Our rental department stays abreast of any changes within these Acts and implements change quickly and efficiently so as not to allow the management of your property to conflict with existing legal guidelines. A Property Manager offers doubles up as a mediator when it comes to dealing with tenants; handling the day to day requests of tenants so as to place a buffer between you and your investment. \ The real estate market is constantly on the move; a property manager that deals with the market effect everyday has a strong hold on its current condition and is therefore in the best possible position to offer sound advice when it comes to obtaining the maximum return for your property whilst maintaining a low vacancy rate.

For Lessors who are agreeable to it, a “For Rent” sign can be placed on your investment property for added exposure.
Selecting the right tenant is a sure way to minimise any future risks you might face with your investment. Therefore, identifying a suitable tenant is one of the most crucial aspects of looking after any investment property. Our property managers have access to the latest technology to help you protect your investment. Once a tenant fills in an application form thorough checks are performed on all potential tenants, taking into consideration their employment history, ability to pay the rent and both their personal and rental references. Our Property Managers also have access to defaulting tenant databases such as TICA (Tenancy Information Centre of Australia) and Barclays.
All applications are put to the Lessor to gain final approval.
Rent Disbursement and Statements
Rental Monies are held within our Trust Account, with Disbursements made on a monthly basis. These funds can be transferred directly into your nominated bank account and should arrive on or before the first working day of the following month. A detailed statement is also issued at the end of each month, with a breakdown of all rent received, maintenance and commission paid. These comprehensive statements, as well as a detailed break down at the end of the financial year, should make accounting easy.
Our property managers understand that your investment property is exactly that; “an investment”. Therefore, regular reviews of the rental income generated by the property and how it compares with other properties in the market is essential. With their strong local and market knowledge our team is capable of advising you of a realistic market opinion within the current conditions, not only at the beginning but also throughout your tenancies.
Our office highly recommends to all landlords that they consider a Landlord Insurance Policy. This insurance covers the lessor for a variety of situations in which they can be left out of pocket. Most financial institutions have this type of insurance available. As a lessor you are required under the legislation to have a minimum of $5,000,000 Public Liability Insurance.
