What To Expect From …
Your Property Manager
OF COURSE, everyone’s expectations will differ. But over the years, my clients have provided a few clues.
Therefore, once you have acquired a suitable Commercial property … any ongoing management needs to ensure that:
- Your property remains let to good tenants.
- Those tenants pay their rental by the due date.
- Your managers will act as if the property were theirs.
- The tenants will be treated as your business partners.
- All maintenance is undertaken by reliable tradespeople.
- That maintenance would be fully detailed and carried out cost effectively — but always with quality workmanship.
- You would be notified well before each tenancy becomes vacant.
- Every possible step is taken to re-let that tenancy.
- Your rentals will be reviewed at appropriate intervals, to reflect a fair market rent.
- Timely payment of any outgoings occurs on your behalf.
- Your monthly statement and rental cheque are sent to you promptly.
- Your property is regularly inspected.
- All Essential Services requirements are met.
- You are alerted to any regulation changes affecting the property.
- You receive accurate advice on any insurance requirements.
- All opportunities to “add value” are maximised.
- Your property is kept competitive in the market place.
This is not intended as an exhaustive list, but merely a guide.
