Providing a property management service means to exercise the operation, control, and oversight of your residential property. The management process indicates a need for your property to be cared for, monitored and accountability given for its useful life and condition.

One important role of a Property Manager is to provide a buffer to landlords who want to distance themselves from their tenant by liaising between tenant and landlord and therefore creating that arm’s length approach that the owner requires.

Property Management isn’t just for Landlords who live distant to their properties but also many who live locally, welcome the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their investment is being well looked after by professional staff. It is also a gentle way for new Landlords to find their feet in property investment.

      Below is an outline of the service you would expect from any estate agent that you instruct to manage your property;

    • The full and proper screening or testing of an applicant’s credit, criminal history, rental history and ability to pay.
    • Accepting rent using legal documents approved for the area in which the property is located.
    • Mitigation and remediation regarding any maintenance issues, generally within a budget, with prior or conveyed consent via the property owner.

    Many clients do not want to be involved in the day to day running of their properties, especially when in full time employment or busy with other commitments. In fact, more and more tenants are now requesting managed properties as it can reduce the potential for conflict. Here are some of the services which are provided;
