For premium Auckland property management of your rental properties, call us at Rent People!
At Rent People you and your tenants can count on us for outstanding Auckland property management services. We’re available 24-hours per day, seven days a week and cover all tenant woes and emergency call-outs.
We’ll work hard to find the best tenants for your property
The first thing we’ll do is find tenants for your rental properties Auckland.
Our find-a-tenant service includes:
- advertising costs
- reference checking
- credit history
- look up existing tenancy tribunal judgements
- we also search a range of databases looking for any history or known issues.
Potential tenants fill out an application form which includes working and living situations and referees for us to call. Once we’ve collected all the information and have conducted background checks, we will select the most suitable tenants for your property and consult with you also.
Each year we’ll do four comprehensive property inspections, the cost of which is included in your weekly management charge (Additional inspections charged at $45 + GST per inspection). We’ll carefully inspect the property’s interior and exterior to make sure the tenants are treating it respectfully. We will report to you any repairs or preventative maintenance that may be necessary.
Basic Rental Property Maintenance
While we’re on site at your rental house, apartment or commercial property, we’re happy to take care of basic maintenance. By handling simple tasks while we’re already there, we’ll save you on call out fees and the cost of contractors. We charge a competitive hourly rate of $45 (plus GST). If we are unable to do the work ourselves, we have a number of trusted contractors who are more than capable of completing work for you. A 5% commission fee plus GST will be charged on the total invoice amount.
All rent is paid into our ANZ Trust account. We forward the rent to you fortnightly by automatic payment (minus our management fee and any other applicable fees) into your nominated bank account. We’ll urgently follow up on rent arrears in accordance with our management agreement and Residential Tenancy Act 1986.
Issues with tenants
If necessary we’ll issue notices for ‘14-day to remedy’, either for property inspection issues or rent arrears. We’ll also deal with applications for eviction, order of examination, attachment orders and warrants to seize property. If mediation is required, we’ll handle applications to the order of the tenancy tribunal. If we chose your tenant or if we have been managing your property for more than 3 months, these costs are included in our fee.
Communication and correspondence
We believe that good communication is the key to good relationships between tenants, managers and landlords. We act as the middle-man, keeping you up to date with what issues have arisen at your rental properties Auckland, and any future issues likely to be on the horizon.
