Questions you should ask when selecting a property manager.

We would encourage all landlords to ask the following questions before selecting a property manager. We’ve provided our responses to these common questions within our downloadable e-booklet, do not hesitate to ask if you have any more.

What are our service fees & advertising costs?

How do we acquire tenants?

Which tenancy database is used to screen prospective tenants?

What is our marketing power and tenant reach?

What is our communication and information strategy?

Does our agency have a comprehensive understanding of price quoting obligations at law, for you and the agency?

How can we help achieve the best possible price and what additional services do we offer to achieve the best price outcome?


Our tenant selection process happens from the moment we receive an enquiry. We ensure all prospective tenants physically inspect properties before completing their application and prefer arranging private inspections. We want responsible tenants for your property just as much as you do. We conduct significant workplace and background checks including the TICA and The National Tenancy Database to confirm their historic rental history has been positive. Photographic identification is required and 100 point check which is kept on file. Aside from this we also know other local estate agents and will phone to receive feedback on their previous tenancy behaviour. Ultimately you make the final decision following our in-depth checks and open communication.


Discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, political opinion, national extraction, social origin, age, medical record, criminal record, marital or relationship status, impairment, mental, intellectual or psychiatric disability, physical disability, nationality, sexual orientation, is illegal. And we do not discriminate and we hope you share these same values.

In accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 a four week Bond is required, which is then lodged with the Office of Fair Trading. Those monies are held until such time that the tenant vacates the property. A final inspection is undertaken and if there is a requirement to make repairs to the property a claim would be placed for the cost of those repair works to be undertaken. Should you chose to allow pets we will arrange to draw up a pet agreement to addendum to the formal lease contract.


Prior to a tenant taking occupation of your property we will conduct a thorough condition report with photographic evidence of the condition of the property, this will ensure that any damage done to the property can be used in an application to retain any or all of the monies held by the Office of Fair trading. A copy of the report and photos will be emailed to you for your own safe keeping and record.


Tenants are required to pay their rent one week in advance. Tenants can pay their rent via any Commonwealth Bank branch nation-wide with cash, cheque, bank cheque or money order, via electronic transfer. We routinely pay out rents to our landlords at the end of each calendar month.
