Why should I use a property manager?
Although some people choose to manage their own investment properties, it can be extremely time consuming to find suitable tenants, collect rent and arrange repair work if something goes wrong. At National Property Buyers we will look after your investment property like it is our own and make sure it is well looked after with rent paid on time. In trickier circumstances, for example if rent hasn’t been paid or the property has been damaged, we will follow the matter up to ensure you are not out of pocket and the property is restored back to its original condition.
Can you recommend how much I should be charging for rent?
Yes. We will complete a full analysis of similar properties to provide you with a medium rental price in the area. Once we take into consideration the type of tenant you would like and the length of the lease, we will recommend the worth of the property and how much you should be charging.
How soon will you be able to find tenants?
This will vary from case to case, so the most important thing is to tell us as soon as possible when you need to find new tenants. In many cases, if we already have suitable photos of the property we can advertise within the week and arrange an open inspection shortly afterwards.
For new listings we will need to take photos of the property to advertise, however we will work with you to find the most suitable time to do this. Once the open inspection has been completed and suitable tenants have been identified, we will organise all of the paperwork so the tenants can move in as quickly as possible and your rent can be collected.
How do you select tenants?
Selecting the right tenant for your property is as important to us as it is to you. At National Property Buyers we want to make sure we match the right tenants in the right place so not only are they happy, but you’ll also sleep peacefully knowing your investment property is being looked after.
Once you let us know we can look for tenants, we will immediately conduct a marketing campaign to advertise and promote your property to the widest audience. After holding an open inspection we will conduct a thorough screening process on perspective tenants, including contacting previous landlords, current and previous employers and credit reference checks.
What happens if a tenant does not pay rent on time?
We’ll take care of this and promptly resolve the situation for you, even if it requires getting new tenants.
