Full-service rooming house management with a rent guarantee

The only rooming house manager that offers a rent guarantee

A rooming house manager that gives you Certainty:

Investing in rooming houses (also known as Class 1B accommodation) is arguably one of the best income generating investments you can make in property. A brand new ‘next generation’ nine-bedroom rooming house can generate upwards of $140,000 per year in gross rent depending on the location.

There are several steps involved in acquiring a rooming house from site acquisition through to the final build and ongoing management. Certainty Property has deep experience in the rooming house sphere and provides an end-to-end solution to ensure that your journey towards rooming house ownership is a stress-free and profitable one.

A hands-on rooming house manager

Engaging an experienced, competent rooming house manager is arguably the most important decision the owner of a rooming house can make.
Certainty Property understands the nuances of managing a successful rooming house and is the only rooming house manager to offer a rental guarantee.

  • Experienced rooming house management team

  • A rent guarantee that gives you peace of mind

  • Comprehensive understanding of relevant rooming house legislation



Great tenants or we pay

With multiple different personalities living under one roof, sourcing the best tenants is key to ensuring your rooming house runs as smoothly as possible.
Once we’ve found great tenants, we work hard to keep them because we pay the rent if tenants fall into arrears or vacate the property.

  • Premium listings on realestate.com.au, flatmates.com.au and Gumtree

  • Professional photography

  • Comprehensive tenant screening

  • Open for inspections when it suits prospective tenants – not us.

We have owned investment property for over twenty years and the service we receive from Certainty Property is by far the best we’ve ever had. Our property manager Sarah has been amazing and the fixed fee of $90 is also great. It’s half what we were paying with our old agent.

I have been working closely with Tim who has gone above and beyond to secure me a lovely and safe home with all my requirements met. I have no hesitation in recommending the team in Melbourne. They have been easy and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Tim!

I would like to thank Cameron and Simon and their team, they have been very helpful, professional and honest. I didn't even notice when the tenant had fallen into arrears. The team acts so quickly and paid me the rent on time. It was greatly appreciated

Their landlord portal is the best. I can see all my statements, leases and respond to any maintenance requests that come through whenever I need. The great thing is that my property manager Mark is still only a phone call or email away.

Rent Certainty has been a godsend for us. When the rental market dipped due to additional supply coming online, Certainty paid the rent when my property was vacant. They’ve also been topping up the weekly rent by $15 a week. It’s taken the stress out of a difficult market.
