Will you be managing the property personally or will I be passed onto someone else?

Do you check prospective tenants against the national tenancy database?

What measures and procedures do you have in place to ensure my rent is paid on time?

Do you have access to tradespeople that can do professional work at very competitive rates?

What is the main focus of the real estate company; Is their main focus on real estate sales with rentals ‘on the side’ or are they solely focussed on property management?

How much property management experience does the Department Manager or Senior Property Manager have? Do they have management that understands in detail the property management process?
