It is not enough for us to know that your tenant is capable of paying their rent on time. Our thorough screening process ensures that the chosen tenant meets all your expectations. We ensure they have the ability and desire, to maintain your property. We also ensure that all prospective tenants undergo complete reference checks. A 100 point identification check is also carried out.
Our primary concern at this stage is to ensure that your rights as an investor and landlord are fully protected. Therefore, our team is fully conversant in all related legal matters, and will ensure that the Residential Tenancy Agreement and the lodgment of Rental Bond is completed accurately and efficiently.
Prior to a tenant moving in we thoroughly assess your property and provide a detailed report of its condition. General inspections are then conducted up to four times a year and can be attended by you or a nominated representative. Our report advises you of the state of your property, how well the tenant is maintaining it and what repairs are required. We can also arrange annual building and pest inspections on your behalf.
A variety of payment methods are available to tenants. Our management software provides us with notification of overdue amounts and we act quickly to ensure payment.
At the end of each month all rent money due to the Landlord is paid direct to your account via EFT, you can also request for a mid-month payment.
Disputes with tenants are uncommon and are generally expediently resolved by our property management team. Should a satisfactory result not be gained through negotiation the Property Manager applies for a Residential Tenancy Tribunal hearing, at which we are able to prepare a case to represent the landlord’s interests.
Maximising the returns of your investment is one of Mackey Real Estate’s key priorities. We regularly assess the rental prices of properties taking into consideration factors including market conditions and the quality of the tenants. We also provide advice regarding potential improvements to your property and keep you regularly updated with what’s happening in the real estate market.
