Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Choosing a property manager in Sydney for your home? The following FAQ’s should help you make the right decision choosing your Sydney property manager.

Is the Agents location a factor?

A Sydney property manager collects rents, manages maintenance and repairs, markets and advertises for tenants, gives reports and feedback, does routine inspections, and your time could probably be better spent.

Sydney property managers also take into consideration different legal considerations and legislation regarding Sydney tenancy laws. A good property manager in Sydney will also make you money on your investment.

How do I change from one Sydney property manager to another?
The transition from one agency to another should be fairly easy, just a case of filling out a form and getting your new agency to do the rest. This can be done at any time regardless of the leasing agreements or if the house is being sold, and should not affect the tenancy.

How long will it take to lease my Property?
A professional property manager in Sydney should be able to assess current market trends to ensure your property is marketed effectively and leases at the earliest possible convenience. One of the great advantages of using a Sydney property manager is taking advantage of their expertise in marketing and advertising properties.

What happens if the tenant does not pay?
In these rare cases the Sydney property manager will usually call the tenant after a few days. If ceased payment continues an arrears breach notice is usually issued, followed by a termination and 14 days to vacate notice if both the Sydney property manager and the client come to this agreement.
