An unoccupied property is a worrying prospect for most landlords, not only because of the lack of rental income placing strain on a landlord’s cash flow and making it difficult to meet mortgage repayments, but also due to exposing the property to theft, squatters and damage.

Engaging a specialist Property Management agency will minimise risk to the property due to the agent constantly opening up and airing out the property during inspections with prospective tenants, keeping an eye on the property during weekly drive past inspections and catching up with neighbours in the street on a regular basis.

Good Property Managers will notice when things are out of order and provide regular feedback to keep you ‘in the loop’ regarding the condition of your untenanted property.
