Owning a rental property can involve a lot of time, commitment, and hard work. At times it can be stressful. It also requires a great deal of knowledge in knowing the rights and responsibilities of not only yourself as a landlord, but that of the tenant as well.
Knowledge and Experience
Our teams combined years of experience in the management of rental properties allows us to resolve any problems/issues that may come about in relation to your property or tenant. Where you may be undecided as to which steps to take, we have practices and procedures in place to determine the timeliest and cost-effective solution.
Our daily dealings with the rental market ensure that we have up to date knowledge, enabling us to assess and guide you as to correct rental price of your property. This allows you to maximize your rental income and reduce vacancy.
Our property managers conduct regular inspections to make sure your tenants are keeping your property to an acceptable standard. At the same time, we will advise of any potential work needed to keep your property in good condition. In regards to any unforeseen maintenance, not only will we sort the problem for you but we will relieve you of having to deal with late-night phone calls from disgruntled tenants.
Marketing your Property
With the location of our main office including two partner offices, we cover the greater region of Auckland and with extensive marketing promotion, including other activities that include our regular Newsletter and Website. This results in more enquiry directly through us.
Tenants that may enquire about one property and find it unsuitable, can be easily redirected to other properties we have available. Having a larger selection of tenants allows us to be more selective in whom we place into a property. We know how important it is to you to get your property tenanted as quickly as possible and we have designed our online website presence to do just that.
Deciding on a Tenant
Finding a tenant that will look after your property and pay the rent on time is essential to your investment. Making the right choice can save you the time, money and stress an unfavourable tenant could cause. As well as having access to thorough background and credit checks, our property management team knows the right questions to ask when conducting reference check with previous landlords and employers to ensure you have the ideal tenant.
There are a number of rules and regulations surrounding rental properties and their tenancies. Not only do you have to abide by the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 but there are a number of other acts that you may not be aware of (Health and Safety at Work Act, Privacy Act 1993, Building Act 2004, to name a few) that must also be adhered to. There are often amendments made, of which you need to stay up-to-date. Our team has a solid understanding of these acts and are immediately updated of any changes.
