What are the benefits of hiring a property manager?

There are a lot of different benefits that are associated with hiring a property manager. This includes the following:

  • 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 – As of the effective and quick services that we provide, 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 if they think 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. Their services can cover a 24-hour abscess and help when a landlord is not available themselves. 
  • Make sure rent is paid on time – By allowing us to take over, this means that the pressure will be reduced when the time comes to collecting 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.
What do property management fees cover?

Property management services can differ from provider to provider, so it is vital to keep this in mind. The price difference between agencies can sometimes equate to the price of a cup of coffee per week for a higher value of service. 

Are property management fees tax-deductible?

In the eyes of the ATO, a landlord is like any other type of company owner, and so 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.
