It’s hard to guarantee an exact time frame. Some properties rent the first day that they hit the market, while others may take a little longer. We generally find that if the property is priced accurately, and well presented, we can source quality tenants within a few days from advertising. In this regard it is important that your property is priced accurately in relation to the current market and we will advise you on this important matter. GO will ensure that you receive the best possible rental return, but at the same time alleviate any delay in the rental of your property.
There are two main criteria to consider when selecting a suitable tenant for your property; their ability to pay the rent and their ability to maintain your property in its current condition.
GO qualify all prospective tenants in relation to both these criteria. Our application form extracts all of the required information to qualify their suitability, we will reference check applicants and qualify the information provided by each tenant and discuss the information collected with you and, together, select the best tenant.
Even though every tenant’s application is screened very carefully, accidents do happen and there can be no guarantee that your property will not be damaged. Our team will conduct regular inspections to minimise any problems that may arise. Routine inspections generally take place three months after a tenant moves in, and twice each year thereafter.
As the owner of the property you can be present for inspections if you wish. Periodic inspections allow us to check on the condition of the property and report any required maintenance and repairs to you as early as possible.
Minor repairs are handled by your property manager, and we will discuss a cost limit on these repairs at the start of the tenancy management. For any larger repairs quotes will be organised and discussed with you prior to moving forward.
Urgent repairs, regardless of cost, may be required by law to be acted upon immediately as legislated in the Residential Tenancy Act.
