For New Managements or existing contract:

We welcome you to contact us to discuss options available for the management of your rental property. We can contact you via phone or email  and can arrange a meeting in-person.

 

Do I get to chose the Tenant I lease my property to?

Yes you can certainly decide who you wish to lease your property to. We will conduct the screening of applications and present our findings to you for approval.

 

How long does it take to lease a property?

As owners of the business we work within our agency as property managers and work with prospective tenants to ensure suitable  home opens and personal appointments are met. This can be  made outside of normal business hours if required.  The time it take to lease a  property is dependent on the market at the time. We aim to lease the property in as soon as is practicably possible.

 

Once you sign a management agreement we then organize to take quality pictures and advertise your property on multiple real estate platforms including:

  • realestate.com.au
  • reiwa.com.au
  • rent.com.au
  • Our website

 

What do I need to do to prepare my property to lease?

The property should be presented correctly to attract the right tenant.

 

  • Organise the property to be professionally detail cleaned: This also sets the standard in which we would like the property returned once the tenant vacates
  • Organise Professional Carpet Cleaning: 
  • Organise a professional flea fumigation if you have had a pet
  • Gardens: Ensure gardens are neat,  lawns are mowed and weeds removed.
  • Maintenance : Ensure all maintenance items are addressed and the property and ensure the property is safe for a tenant. We can assist you with this.
  • Have your mail redirected: Please insure all mail is redirected to your new address
  • Utilities: Electricity, Gas, Phone etc. please ensure all accounts are advised and cancelled accordingly. 
  • Instruction Manuals: Please hand to your Property Manager or leave in the kitchen drawer
  • Keys: Please ensure all locks have keys and they are in locking order. Supply two full sets of keys (one for the office and one for the tenant)
  • Smoke Alarms and Residual Currency Devices (RCD’S); Ensure the property is compliant with the Building Regulations 2012, for further information please refer to Smoke alarms and RCDs | Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (commerce.wa.gov.au)
  • Minimum securityEnsure the property meets the minimum security requirements as outlined in the Residential Tenancies Regulations 1989, for further information please speak with us Minimum levels of security (commerce.wa.gov.au)
  • Organise Landlord Insurance We at no time can guarantee your tenant’s performance at your property. The risk belongs to the owner of the property, and therefore the owner should be insured for such a risk. Even a good tenancy can unfortunately turn bad,  If the tenant’s circumstances change and/or  their job is lost. This can result in rent owing and the property not maintained. Landlord insurance will often cover rent loss due to tenant default and malicious damage to the property caused by the tenant  We suggest conducting your own research to find what cover best suits you. We also ask that you ensure your property insurance is current.
