For new and even existing tenants, there can sometimes be confusion surrounding the correct action to take if something at the property requires attention. As a general rule, you should always call on your Property Investment Manager whenever an issue arises as they will be able to assist you with the right course of action to take. 

The following are some of the most common situations in which a Property Investment Manager should be called in on:

To alter or add to the premises - Surprising your landlord with a new coat of paint in a bedroom may seem well-intentioned. However, you should never change the appearance of a property without the permission of the owner. Unapproved changes could very well impact the future plans the landlord has for their investment.

Maintenance / repairs – If you would like to request maintenance or repairs to certain areas of the property, notify your property manager in writing or, if an emergency, give them a call.

Rent issues  – You have a commitment to meet your rental payments on time. If you have trouble meeting your rental payments, you should discuss your situation with your property manager. If you experience a rent increase, you can also discuss this with your property manager.

End the tenancy – If you have decided that you would like to end your tenancy, consult your property manager who can advise you on your obligations.
