A warning to all landlords…

14-Sep-2016
Written by Ashley Blake
Opening your investment property to complete strangers and trusting them to respect your home, is a big deal and something our property management team certainly doesn’t take lightly!




We ask you this question…Do you have a property manager and if so is your property manager keeping a close enough eye on your investment property?




Recent headlines in the Sunday Telegraph and on ABC News on the weekend comes as a timely reminder “Warning to Landlords to weed out druggie tenants’. The article highlights the importance of regular routine inspections being carried out by your property manager.




As the managing agents of your property, we are allowed four inspections a year although 2 is normally sufficient to ensure that your investment property is being maintained in good condition and not being used for illegal purposes.




Your property manager should be experienced enough to know what signs to look for to detect illegal activity and problems gaining access should raise a red flag and alert them to look more closely at the property and the tenant.




At Newton Real Estate you know when an inspection is being carried out, as your invitation to attend is always sent prior to the inspection followed by a written report after the inspection.




If you have any concerns about the lack of routine inspection of your rental property or would like some advice then, give me a call at Newton Real Estate on 02.9524 0777.
