How Certainty Property Solves The Most Common Issues Landlords Face

Investing in property can be an excellent financial move for many Australians. However, it would be a mistake to believe that building and managing an investment portfolio is easy, or even guaranteed to be profitable. Below are three of the most common problems landlords face, and how Certainty Property helps mitigate these risks.

Finding a great tenant

A great tenant can be incredibly hard to find, and finding the right one is both an art and science. Professional property managers understand that carefully selecting the proper tenant can save a world of pain for both the landlord and tenant down the track. A great tenant will not only be diligent in paying rent on time, but will also look after the property like it is their own and preferably stay in the property for an extended period of time.

Unlike many other property managers, Certainty Property has more incentive than most to find a great tenant. Should a tenant fall into arrears or in the event that we are unable to find a tenant, we will pay the agreed market rent to you out of our own pocket.

Managing maintenance and repairs

Maintenance is an important part of owning a rental property. Promptly fixing maintenance issues as they arise can save you lots of money in the long-run by preventing the need for major repairs. A great property manager will liaise with both the landlord and the tenant to ensure all parties are aware of maintenance issues and kept informed as they are rectified.

At Certainty Property, we strongly believe in taking an active approach to maintenance issues as they arise. Tenants rightfully expect that when they have issues with the property they are renting that they will be dealt with promptly. As such, we have an extensive network of preferred trades people on call that can assist in resolving issues in a cost-effective manner.

Issues with unreliable tenants

Unreliable tenants can cause a variety of issues for landlords. Late or missed rental payments can result in cash flow issues for the landlord, with landlords often falling behind in property loan repayments as a result of arrears. Evicting unreliable tenants can also be a nightmare, often involving long drawn out court processes with a legal framework that can feel as if it is strongly biased against the landlord.

Certainty Property offers a guaranteed rental product, which covers not only rental arrears, but also continues to pay the agreed market rent regardless of whether the property is tenanted or not. As such, our incentives are completely aligned with yours as a landlord.
