Prospective tenants are qualified as suitable by checking past employment, past real estate rentals and personal references.
In the case of a person who has recently sold their property, we talk to the salesperson involved who can often give us an idea of the applicant’s lifestyle. Should we be uncertain about a tenant, we will always refer to you for advice.
It is important to ascertain that the prospective tenant is who they say they are. This is easily verified by sighting photo identification.
WE CARE FOR OUR TENANTS
Our philosophy is that tenants are our business! Without tenants you don’t receive rent and we don’t receive commission. Today there is more competition to attract quality tenants, they are more sophisticated and have grown accustomed to good service.
For this reason it is more important than ever to value, respect and care for our tenant’s needs. We don’t treat tenants as outsiders; they are part of our business.
Our property management team regularly inspects properties on behalf of the investor. After each inspection you will receive a full written report on the property’s condition. Photo’s will be taken and placed on record for photographic evidence.
During these inspections we will conduct a maintenance inspection as well as a general check of the internal and external condition. Should any major maintenance be required, you will be notified immediately.
Maintenance matters are carried out in accordance with the property investor’s instruction. We only engage tradespeople who meet our office’s high standard. We usually request form our landlords a R500 authorised maintenance expenditure limit to save having to worry you for authorisation on usually minor repairs. You will be advised of any repairs necessary over this limit.
Part of the service we provide is to promptly submit any major claims for repair to your Insurance Company – by mutual agreement
Our office utilises the latest in computer software so that we can offer you a speedier service in accounting monies to you.
