What is the protocol for carrying out maintenance on my property?
We organise maintenance on your property in line with the owner’s instructions on the Managing Agent’s Form. This form is completed at the commencement of property management. The tenant is required to report any property maintenance directly to us. We also check for items requiring maintenance at the 6 monthly inspections. We then contact the owner to discuss an appropriate course of action.
What if the tenant causes damage to my property?
In the event of accidental or malicious damage caused by the tenant or their guests, this will be the responsibility (and cost) of the tenant to repair and return the property to the condition it was originally leased. It’s always best practice to check the conditions of the landlord insurance policies to determine whether accidental and malicious damage are covered as many policies don’t cover both.
What if a tenant gives notice to vacate the property?
We notify the landlord and ask if they would like the property to be re-let, we discuss the rental amount and provide advice in relation to a rental increase. We advertise the property on allhomes.com.au and conduct an open house at the property. We also discuss with the landlord any applications we receive for tenancy and the final decision rests with them.
What if a tenant breaks their lease?
The current tenant will generally pay rent on the property until a suitable new tenant is found.
