What exactly does a property manager do?
We look after our owners’ properties. We take care of all aspects of repairs and maintenance. As such we work with builders, plumbers, electricians, cleaners and gas fitters. We also work with gardeners, arborists and lawn mowing service providers.
We organise for the cleaning and servicing of pools and spas. We brief tilers, roofers, carpet layers, curtain and blind installers/repairers. We instruct glass repairers, insulation installers, locksmiths, painters and decorators. Then there are pest controllers and house washers. There are asbestos removers, chimney sweeps, heat pump and air conditioning services. Plus there are drainage and sewage consultants.
We do regular inspections of all our rental properties. The inspection includes a written report and photos. We check each property complies. We check for operational smoke alarms, asbestos identification, insulation, weather tightness and mould. We then liaise with our owners and tenants about any outstanding issues.
