If possible, we will meet you at your property so that you can show us any particular features or maintenance issues. After inspecting the property, we will forward a detailed report. Our aim is to get the best possible rent for your property in the quickest timeframe, whilst still securing a responsible tenant who will look after the property. We achieve this by our realistic approach to an achievable rent. We don’t offer inflated rental amounts just to gain your business – there are no winners when the property remains vacant for weeks on end. We take the following factors into consideration when setting the rent.
It is important that the first impression of your property is a good one. Take the time to critically assess the appearance of your property from the road. Does the mailbox need a lick of paint? Is the front lawn neat and tidy?. Is the garden easy to maintain?. Does the property look inviting and well maintained? Take the time to replace tap washers and blown light bulbs and attend to any other minor faults – you may have grown to accept them, but a paying tenant may not. Steam clean carpets and rugs and leave the house clean – that way we can enforce the same standard when the tenant vacates the property. Windows need cleaning, as do chimney flues. We can provide a detailed checklist to assist you. If this all sounds too daunting – don’t worry we have a team of professionals who can attend to these matters at very reasonable rates.
A property condition report is compiled at the commencement of a tenancy, just before your tenant moves in. This report details the condition of the property and contents,item by item. It also includes multiple detailed photos.
The property condition report is used when the tenant vacates to enable a comparison and to assess if the property is left in the same condition, allowing for fair wear and tear. When keys are returned to us at the end of a tenancy a “bond inspection” is carried out as soon as possible. The property condition report is used at this inspection and each part of the property is assessed against the report, item by item. Any items that are damaged or require maintenance other than fair wear and tear are identified and the bond is withheld until these issues have been rectified by the tenant or by CPPM on the tenant’s behalf.
There will be parts of your property that require constant regular assessment. If these areas are not assessed regularly, it may result in a loss of income or damage to your property. We also need to ensure that your property is being treated with respect by the tenants. This is why we carry out regular inspections on your behalf.
We can transfer rental funds to your nominated bank account on either mid-month on end of the month basis (depending on the schedule of rental payments received from the tenant). A detailed statement is emailed to you each time a payment is transferred to you and will have any invoices relating to expenditure for your property attached, so you are always fully informed. Payments can be made to more than one nominated bank account. All of our fees can be claimed as tax deductions, as they are an expense incurred in obtaining property income. As part of our service, we can make payments for the following on your behalf:-
