There's a lot to know and a lot at stake
Professional Property Management or DIY?
1- Could you afford to be hit with an unexpected bill in the tens of thousands?
2- Have you read the claim conditions in your insurance policy?
3- Are you aware of your legal obligations as a landlord, and the penalties for not meeting them?
There is a lot more to property management these days than most people realise, and there’s a lot at stake. One missed step or document can cause a lot of headaches down the track if something goes wrong.
To mitigate risk and facilitate the best outcomes for your investment, it really does pay to have the best people looking out for you.
Owning a rental property is a business
Business owners depend on a team of professionals that work in their best interest.
Perhaps the question you should ask yourself is -
Can you afford NOT to have a Property Manager?
If you ever need to claim for damages to your property, you’ll likely need to demonstrate that you’ve taken every precaution to mitigate risk to it. Your insurer may take into account your tenancy screening and inspection processes, and request copies of tenants’ 1. credit checks, 2. reference checks and 3. proof of ID.
They may also ask how you validated your references, and assess the questions you asked to ensure they were robust enough. While requesting copies of previous rental inspections, along with photos of damaged areas before and after as evidence.
What’s more, if you need to file a claim through the tenancy tribunal for damages or unpaid rent, you’ll need to demonstrate you followed the required process and met your legislative requirements as a landlord.
