Choosing a property manager

By Andria Savva

When choosing a property manager you need to select someone who knows the law and is confident in applying the law. You need to choose someone who will pay attention to the finer details and continually strive to maximise the return on your investment.

Education, ongoing training programs and seminars are also important for a property manager to keep abreast of changing legislation and market conditions. Property management is no longer just collecting the rent; it is a comprehensive management service which should be provided by a professionally trained property manager.

What questions should I ask when engaging a property manager?

  • How long have they been a property manager?
  • How many properties do they manage?
  • What formal training have they undertaken?
  • What procedural systems do they have in place?
  • Do they attend regular training courses to keep abreast of legislation and industry changes?
  • Do they hand out keys to prospective tenants or do they accompany them to the property?
  • Can they present you with testimonial letters from current and previous clients?
  • What is their policy on managing arrears?
  • When will you receive your money?
  • How often do they carry out fair market rent reviews?
  • How will they assist in maximising your return and optimising capital growth?
