Your property will be handled by a property manager that has local knowledge and skilled professionals on staff who are eager to assist you with all management services. At the beginning of each tenancy a Property Condition Report is completed to ensure a thorough record of the details of your property is on file. The tenant is given the opportunity to make comments on the report. This is followed up by periodic inspections, with a report forwarded to you on each occasion.
These inspections help to mitigate and future risk by providing the tenant with the opportunity to highlight and areas of maintenance that may require attention. It also allows the property manager to check on the condition in which the property is being maintained.
