Tenant selection


We are diligent in our selection of tenants with thorough checks on all information provided on tenancy applications. As members of the National Tenancy Database we are able to check on current as well as past tenancies. We will not accept any tenant who does not meet our strict selection criteria.


Once a tenant has been approved for your property we arrange the preparation of signing the Residential Tenancy Agreement and the lodgement of the Rental Bond in accordance with statutory requirements. Before the agreement is signed we carry out a detailed condition report of the property to be included with the agreement.


We provide tenants with a fact sheet before the signing of lease to ensure they fully understand their obligations.


Rent collection and reporting


 Regular reports are produced detailing any tenants who have missed a payment or are behind in rent. Tenants who are behind are contacted immediately and most respond quickly to our reminder letters, phone calls and SMS messages. Due to our arrears being closely monitored it is a rare occurrence for us to have to take further action at the Tenancy Tribunal. However, this procedure is carried out if required.


Payment Methods


We provide all our tenants with hassle free methods for rental payment. Tenants can pay rent directly over the internet, direct credit, centre pay, cash, money order and bank chq.


Statements


Each month we prepare and forward you a statement of account for your property.


These statements detail the rent collection and any disbursements made on your behalf, together with any other expenditure as itemised in your management agency agreement.


Funds are transferred to your nominated bank account fortnightly or monthly as per agency management agreement.


Annual financial statement


At the end of each financial year we provide you with an Annual Financial Summary of your investment.
