RENTING – Landlord Information

What is a Property Condition Report?

The Property Condition Report is compiled at the commencement of a tenancy prior to your tenant moving into the property. This report outlines the condition of the property and is used when the tenant vacates to ensure that the property is left in the same condition.

An inspection is also carried out as soon as possible at the end of a tenancy when the tenants have returned their keys. The Property Condition Report is used at this inspection to make certain that the property is in the same condition as when the tenant took possession. It is at this inspection that any items that need to be rectified by the tenant are identified and any Landlord maintenance will also be noted.



What is a Routine Inspection?

Routine inspections are conducted after a tenant takes possession of the property and are conducted four times a year. These inspections are essential to ensure that your property is being maintained to an acceptable standard and to identify any maintenance that may be required. These inspections are now done with an 'ipad' and a copy of the routine inspection report is forwarded to you after each inspection with photos and should it be necessary, a member of the First National Property Management Team will contact you to discuss items noted on the report.



What happens when a tenant stops paying rent?

When a tenant falls behind in their rental payments they are issued with a notice of the breach advising them that they are behind and requesting that they rectify the problem. If this is not done within the stipulated time period then a termination notice may be obtained through the Tenancy Tribunal and a notice is issued requiring that they vacate the premises.



How do tenants pay their rent?

Tenants have several options to pay their rent, leaving no excuse for late payments.
  •     By cheque
  •     Internet Banking through their chosen financial institution
  •     Direct debit from their nominated bank account, we will supply the tenant with our account details to arrange an automatic transfer.
  •     By AP (automatic payment)



When does the rent money get paid into my account?
At the end of every month all monies held less fees is paid to you by way of direct debit to your nominated bank account or by cheque. A statement is issued at the same time outlining the debits and credits for that month together with any invoices showing any maintenance costs incurred.
