FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Q: HOW DO I CHANGE MY PROPERTY OVER IF IT IS CURRENTLY BEING MANAGED BY ANOTHER AGENT?
 
It's easy!  If you currently have a property managed by another agent and you're not satisfied with the service you are getting and would like to change over, all you have to do is sign an Authority to Act and an Owner Instruction Form with us and we will take care of everything else.  We will organise for the tenant to be notified and have all appropriate documents and keys collected from your managing agent.  Changing your managing agent couldn't be easier.
 
Q:  HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FIND A TENANT FOR MY PROPERTY?
 
This is a common question and there is no guarantee on how long it takes to rent a property.  However, the better your property is presented and the more realistic the rental amount, the quicker it will rent out.
 
Q:  DO I NEED LANDLORD'S INSURANCE?
 
As with any insurance policy, it is not compulsory to have landlord insurance on your property, however we strongly recommend that every owner has a specific landlord insurance policy.  Landlord insurance protects you in the event of any unpaid rent, tenants departing the property early or damaging the property.
 
Q: HOW SHOULD I KNOW WHAT MY PROPERTY WILL RENT FOR?
 
The best way to do this is talk to your managing agent or log onto realestate.com.au and look at what properties are for rent in your area.  You will get the best indication of what rental amount you should be getting on your property by closely comparing it to other properties similar to yours that are currently being rented or have just be rented.  Also, take into consideration any upgrades you may have made to the property.  Apart from this, market forces will determine exactly what amount of rent you achieve.
