    Jennifer and Luke
  • “I have found them to be extremely efficient, and they have found me excellent tenants. Their friendly, approachable manner is very acceptable, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for professional help in property management”
  • “ I came to CPPM after a prior agent had dropped the ball and missed some basic maintenance that could have led to more serious building damage. Upon engaging CPPM to manage the property, they had their trades attend immediately and for a fair price, with no issues to date since. Rent has been paid and the place has been tenanted trouble free.”
  • “A very friendly and professional team who know the area extensively hence helped us navigate and settle into our New Home comfortably. Highly Recommend”

    The Benefits of Hiring a  Property Manager

    Piece of mind

    Outsourcing the management of your property to industry professionals means you no longer need to worry about your responsibilities as a landlord, the organisation and paperwork, or managing the tenant. Our team will reduce your stress and overwhelm by happily taking those tasks out of your hands, and keeping you up-to-date.

    Fewer legal problems

    Nightmare tenants can end up running up legal problems, which cost both money and time. Property management businesses are up to date on the latest laws, so you have nothing to worry about.

    Lower chance of tenant turnover 

    We provide an effective and efficient service meaning there is a lesser chance of you encountering a high tenant turnover. Should there be any changes on your side, such as a rent increase, tenants may be more willing to cooperate knowing they are in good hands.

    Point of contact for tenants

    Rather than you needing to deal with all tenant issues yourself, a property management business can sort them out for you.

    Saving your time

    Effectively managing a property can be time-consuming, made even tricker when it’s an extra task on your already busy week.

    We make sure rent is paid on time

    By allowing us to take over the pressure will be reduced when the time comes to collect rent payments from challenging tenants. If tenants do not pay their rent on time, we will be able to enforce lease policies and take the required steps to rectify this.

    Property Management Fees

    A decision should never be made purely on the fee structure. For example, a difference of 1% in management fees (the cost of one cappuccino a week) may influence you to select an agency whose poor management of your property may end up costing you thousands of dollars in damage or loss of rent.

    There is no such thing as a standardised service when it comes to property management with many agencies offering differing levels of service. Therefore we strongly recommend that you carefully research and compare services .

    Our management fee is 9.9 per cent of the rent collected each week. The property management fee on this table provides further information, if there is anything you do not understand, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

    Frequently Asked Questions about our Property Management Services

    How do you promote my property?

    We know that marketing your property is the most important aspect of successfully leasing it.  Your property will be promoted in a variety of different ways to ensure maximum possible exposure and get a greater selection of quality tenants for you to choose

    • On our website, and social media accounts
    • On the most popular major real estate websites 
    • Via  an email or text message which  will be sent to any prospective tenants who have registered their interest with us
    •  Signage  in front of our prime Sandy Bay location with lots of foot traffic, and at your property
    • Through our extensive network of corporate clients looking for rental accommodation for their top-level employees
    How do you find your tenants?

    After showing a prospective tenant through your home personally (and noting how they respect your property) they’re required to complete a comprehensive questionnaire that provides us with a full background. The following steps are then taken:

    • National Tenancy Database check to see if the tenant has previously defaulted on rental payments
    • Previous and current landlord/agent references are checked and verified
    • Previous and current employment references and income  are checked and verified
    • A personal information report is obtained, and proof of identity is checked

    After this thorough process you will be presented with the applications for selection and approval, You will have final say – it is your property – we simply put forward our recommendations. 

    Are property management fees tax-deductible?

    In the eyes of the ATO, a landlord is like any other type of company owner,  you do need to pay taxes on the profits you make. Luckily, though, the expenses that are associated with the property are tax-deductible, and this includes property management fees.
